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 appears to be attracting people to him and consequently growing his fan base.
It was alleged that the individual emerged as the best graduating student from the Department of Arts at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) in 2016.
