“I want Laycon to win and I think he will win, in the start I thought Neo would when I was in the House,” he said.
When asked why he wants Laycon to win, he says;
“When I actually heard his music for the first time, when they played it by then I was on my own vibe I didn’t really listen to it, I just saw people jumping around him doing this and I didn’t know it was him so I think I told the DJ to turn it up and told everybody to calm down so I can hear it.
“When I first heard the song I realized that I see a lot of potentials in this boy and I felt like music really uplifts people, it really makes them feel high when they feel low it gets them out of tough times especially in this country and I know that with him winning I felt like he would do more with that win in terms of other people, so I felt like he would be able to really touch some peoples life no matter how low or high up.”
BBNaija: 311 fans raise over N12.5m for disqualified housemate
More than 310 fans and viewers of the fifth season of the popular reality television shows in Nigeria, Big Brother Naija (Lockdown Edition), have raised over N12.5m for Erica Nlewedim, a 26-year-old housemate who was disqualified on the 48th day of the show.
According to the information on her page regarding the Gofundme account, as at 9.14pm on Friday, $28, 410 (approximately N12.5m) have been donated by 311 fans.
The incident, combined with some of her other actions, earned her a third and final strike.
According to Big Brother, Erica was issued a strike for verbally abusing her fellow housemates, disrespecting the Head of House lounge, and interfering with the production process.
This instantly angered some of her fans, who subsequently directed verbal abuse at the camp of Laycon, whom they held responsible for Erica’s fate.
In light of these unfortunate incidents, a Gofundme fundraiser targeted at $100,000 was created for “the star of BBNaija season 5, whose journey on the show came to an emotional end – to realise some of her hopes and aspirations”.
In a statement on her Gofundme page, one Ehizode Irefo, the organiser of the fundraiser, said, “The funds will be used to raise awareness for mental health as per therapist’s fees and also help her get back on her feet considering the disqualification.”
Since Erica’s disqualification, personalities, including a wealthy socialite, Terry Waya; Ovation publisher, Dele Momodu; and an actor, Uti Nwachukwu, have been lending their support for her.
@DeleMomodu’s tweets reads, “When I said days ago that winning BBN is not a matter of life & death and no reason for bitterness & a loser may become greater than whoever wins the game, I was attacked by those who don’t know that experience is the best teacher.
We are with you all the way and we have some plans ongoing. Stay strong, keep soaring @RealKiddwaya & @EricaNlewedim.”
