The highly anticipated 5th season of the BBNaija show started off yesterday, 19th of July, 2020, and as expected Nigerians have started expressing their mixed feelings about the show.
Among the contestant who caused a buzz at the premiere show is an individual identified as Laycon. Many had ridiculed the young man for his looks and wondered how he managed to find himself in the Big Brother house.
Interestingly, hours after the BBNaija housemate was trolled on social media, new information about appears to be attracting people to him and consequently growing his fan base.
It was alleged that the individual emerged as the best graduating student from the Department of Arts at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) in 2016.
Shortly after the information became public knowledge, many who had trolled him some hours ago returned to note that he may be one of the housemates to watch out for in the fifth season of the reality show.
They also stressed the importance of not judging a book simply because of how it appears.
Laycon was the Best graduating student in Unilag from Dept of Arts 2016 and he did his NYSC in Lagos too. Hmmmmm. This Boy is intelligent still observing his environment, one Twitter user wrote.
Another fan of the show said:
