In other news, Laycon is no doubt the definition of grace looking at how his journey to fame started and how it has been so far.
The young man who was a part of the BBNaija 2020 Lockdown show eventually emerged as the winner despite the heavy backlash he had received when he just joined the game.
Laycon was said to look like a thief, a dispatch rider, a phone fixer, to name a few and how public opinion about him later changed was something many have called grace.
