Laycon in BBNaija
While Laycon is not a controversial housemate, he seems to have gotten himself into an 'entanglement' - that is, with his feelings for Erica.
Laycon developed feelings for Erica and declared his interest to be in a relationship with her. Sadly, Erica rejected him, saying that she has a connection with Kiddwaya.
This hurt Laycon, and he even told Biggie and other housemates that he feels pained whenever he sees Erica and Kidd having romantic moments.
A fellow housemate, Praise, even advised him to move on and focus on the game,
“I know you like her but you need to move on from Erica because she is with Kiddwaya...You don’t know what will happen later in the show. I know it will be very hard especially in this house but you should try, you don’t know if you will stay longer than her...She might be gone very soon but you need to move on"
However, during the Saturday night party on 8th August, an intoxicated Erica almost kissed Laycon, much to Kidd's chagrin, who seemed heartbroken when he saw his love interest so close to Laycon.
After the party, Laycon then told Praise that Erica had tried to kiss him and that he stopped her because he knew she was drunk. While speaking to Praise, he said,
“Erica has been trying to kiss me but I stopped her. She is drunk and needs to be guided. I’ll protect her and not disrespect her. I’m not going to let her sleep with Kiddwaya.”
Now, Laycon is stuck in a love triangle between him, Erica, and Kidd, but it seems that Kidd already has Erica's heart.
