#BBNAIJA's Laycon Is Proof That 'Underdogs' Cannot Be Ruled Out Just Yet - Do You Agree?

The much anticipated fifth season of Nigerian reality show, Big Brother Naija, is already underway. Twenty housemates would be slugging it out for a grand prize of N85 million.


As the show began yesterday, all twenty housemates were introduced and directed into the house, however, something unusual happened when one among the contestants, Laycon, was introduced.


Coming on stage together with his slim frame and shaggy hair, Laycon appeared to appear as if the standard underdog of the show. this concept was rightly proven on social media as several Twitter users began to tweet their perception of the contestant.


While a number of the comments were hilarious, others were just downright offensive and stereotypical. The comments bordered on his looks with some people calling him names like 'spare parts seller', 'phone repairer' and even 'drug dealer'.


A Twitter user, @Naidsin, was quick to call out those that were proponents of those stinging tags. He said: "The way most of you profiled LAYCON initially sight without giving him the advantage of a doubt is that the same way SARS profiles Nigerian youths. the sole difference is you’re not holding guns, so your harassment are limited to your keyboards #bbnlockdown #laycon"


In spite of of these , It seems to be that both the great and bad publicity is functioning out well for Laycon who has been trending on Twitter since the show began yesterday. The hashtag #laycon has now gathered over 18k tweets thus far .


This engagement amongst several other factors is proof that though he could seem just like the underdog, he shouldn't be ruled out just yet. Another thing that might work well for Laycon's success is that the incontrovertible fact that he's an influencer on Twitter with over 20k followers.


His followers also are recipients of his musical talent as Laycon may be a fire-spitting rapper. His EP, 'Who Is Laycon?' was released this year featuring big names the likes of Reminisce.


Beyond this is often that Laycon also holds a robust fanbase among children who constitute the main audience of the BBNaija show. the category of 2016 University of Lagos graduate was allegedly the simplest graduating student of his faculty.


Many fans of the show have already alluded to his smarts and wits just over one night of watching the young man. Alongside this is often also his calm, analytic demeanour which many are surprisingly growing to like .


On Twitter, @mike_okiki, says of him: "Beware of a person that stands alone... He’s not lonely, He’s calculating #laycon". If it does end up that Laycon is indeed using this calculative side of him to review each of the housemates and eventually dominate, then he must be the foremost strategic housemate this year.


Do you think he would go far on the show?
