- BBNaija 2020 Lockdown winner, Laycon, recently impressed fans after reports made the rounds that he donated to support sickle cell patients in Nigeria
- The reality star was celebrated by one of the beneficiaries of his goodwill on social media
- A health organisation also located in the country also thanked the reality star for donating to sickle cell warriors
BBNaija 2020 Lockdown star, Olamilekan Agbeleshe popularly called Laycon, reportedly donated an undisclosed amount to help sickle cell patients in the country.
The reality show star’s goodwill was discovered after a young lady identified as Bolaji Ekun on Twitter, shared the experience her cousin had at a hospital when he was told to pay a lesser amount for dr*ugs because Laycon had subsidised the fee.
According to Bolaji, her cousin took her son a sickle cell foundation in Lagos and she was told to pay a lesser amount of money because Laycon had given them money to treat sickle cell patients.
“My cousin took her son to sickle cell foundation Idiaraba to get dr*ug for her son , she was told to pay little amount of money cos Laycon gave them money to treat SS patient. She cried and she was so happy cos her president love them. Thanks Laycon."

A health access initiative in Nigeria, TOHAI, also corroborated the lady’s claim by acknowledging Laycon’s contribution.
In their words:
“Thank you @itsLaycon for donating to sickle cell warriors support in Nigeria. As an organization advocating for newborn screening for Sickle Cell disease and associated treatments for children in low resources settings in Nigeria, we appropriate your generosity. God bless you big."

It is no longer news that Laycon has the genotype SC as he disclosed this during the BBNaija show to one of his closest friends, Vee.
In a recent interview during his media rounds, the BBNaija Lockdown winner revealed that he was not the type of person to use things about himself to gain sympathy.
He also exonerated fellow housemate, Erica, from claims that she used his genotype to insult him during the show as he admitted that she was not aware of it.
"I'm not the kind of guy that would want to get something out of pity. The only person I remember telling was Vee and I told her in a whisper because she respects information that I divulge to her."
