The first thing you might want to know about Laycon is his name. Though popularly known as Laycon, is real name is Olamilekan Mosshood Agbeleshebioba, the length of his surname brought about the innovation to shorten it for easy pronunciation. So when you call him Lekan Agbeleshe, you will not be penalised.
Laycon is the winner of the BBNaija 2020 lockdown season 5 and that was a precedented achievement for the indigene of Ogun State who was born on November 8, 1993, and bread in Lagos State.
When you ask “Who is Laycon?” Laycon is a man who believes that living is not about thinking about yourself alone. He is Nigerian 26 years old man who was angry with his late father who lived his life catering for others and would not mind putting himself and his family at stake.
According to him, his father would to mind collecting his salary as Nigerian Police Officer and give more than half of it to a stranger in need of financial assistance, only to bring the leftover home to his mother to manage.
He grew up seeing his parents struggle to cater to the need of himself and his two older brothers. As much as he appreciates the golden heart that was stuck in his father’s chest, it took him time to forgive him for how he treated himself.
Somehow, Laycon believes his late father did not do too well for himself and his family considering how he hide his sickness from his family members until few weeks to his death when to was obviously too late.
He holds his father responsible for the painful death that made him fatherless at a point he was needed the most. Who would have expected that a man you love so much and see health perfect in your judgement would come up to reveal that he has been dealing secretly with a terminal ailment?
Laycon’s depth of wisdom so much outweighs his age. For a 26 years old man, he talks wiser and acts so appropriate. On a funny base, maybe that is why he has always dated older women. While he was in the BBNaija Lockdown house, he told some of his co ex-housemates that he has never dated a lady of bis age.
Though he said it was never planned that way, he just ends up finding out that the ladies are older than him. The most hilarious part of this is that the only time he dated a lady younger than him, was his worse relationship experience.
Erica the only disqualified housemate of the BBNaija 2020 lockdown season 5 edition is the only lady who we can say Laycon has ever loved and would be his age mate. Could the “age mate thing” be the reason they did not work out? Erica also confessed to being attracted to him, but it was only “mentally’ which was not enough for her to get along on the journey of the heart with him.

To his name, he has several covers to some Nigerian hit songs and he was signed to Fierce Nation record label in 2019.
