Laycon Reveals His Genotype Is SC, Nigerians Blast Erica For Body-Shaming Him
BBNaija Laycon has revealed that his genotype is Sickle Cell (SC). The musician-housemate got Nigerians hailing him online.
Some people even dragged Erica for abusing Laycon about his condition when she body shamed him while in the house.
A video of Laycon having a conversation with the other four housemates, Nengi, Dorathy, Vee, and Neo about his genotype has got Nigerians talking on social media.
The musician-housemate revealed that he is SC. According to a medical journal, PubMed, some people with this genotype develop Hb SC disease, a variant of sickle cell disease. Thankfully, Laycon stated that he hardly falls sick.
Many Nigerians have expressed surprise that despite having all the things he could have used to gain sympathy votes, he decided to use his talent instead.
As expected, fans of the reality TV show have now taken to the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter to react to Laycon’s revelation about his genotype. Some people recalled how disqualified housemate, Erica who used to be Laycon’s close friend in the house body-shamed him during her angry outburst at the musician. And as expected, others, while noting how strong Laycon is, slammed Erica for looking down on him.
See some reactions from Nigerians:
Finding out Laycon is SC and he has never used it to seek pity votes sends chills down my spine. He's constantly putting in hard work
Told Erica about his medical condition and despite using it against him, he still regard her as a friend
I'm so emotional rn. God bless Laycon.🥺

Erica knew Laycon is SC, shaded him with his drugs and also said he would die before 50 (before SC are mostly like to die before then). My dislike for that babe has increased

Just reading that Laycon is SC genotype. It's all very clear now… Now I see where the insult and body shaming came from. May we not tell our problems to people that will use it against us. 🙏

With this revelation that shows Laycon is SC, and how Erica knew & used it to shades him, it shows Laycon has what it takes to gather pity votes but never used it.
He didn't use his genotype to gather fans & votes, he didn't use poverty, yet some fools says he is seeking pity.
