Only a few days ago, Nigerian media personality and BBAfrica winner, Uti Nwachukwu, took to social media via his Twitter page to share his thoughts on the BBNaija 2020 Lockdown edition.
According to the young man, every BBNaija season usually has a housemate that is followed by grace and loved by many fans.
Uti said that this show of love and support for the housemate usually leads to their eventual victory and that the housemate who represents that this year is Laycon.
The fifth season of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show commenced on Sunday, July 19, and fans have started expressing mixed reactions at the crop of housemates that will be gracing the TV screens for the next 71 days.
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 him attracted a lot of people to him after reports surfaced online claiming he emerged as the best graduating student from the Department of Arts at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) in 2016.
