Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported how Laycon reached one million followers on his Instagram page, a feat that had never been achieved before.
What made his number of followers extra special was that he was able to reach the milestone while still in the BBNaija house as a contestant.
Laycon reportedly had a little over 3000 followers when he first joined the reality show but his ratings quickly grew among fans and many of them followed his Instagram page.
