Olamilekan Agbelesebioba, aka Laycon, is the winner of the recently concluded Big Brother Naija (Lockdown Edition). He tells TOFARATI IGE about the lessons he learnt in the house, the controversy surrounding the house and money he got from the Ogun State government among other issues
Now that you’re out of the house, what is your next move?
Obviously, my music career comes first, then every other thing would follow. Also, I have always said my primary goal is to spread love and light, and affect people’s lives positively. That is what I intend to do.
What should fans be expecting from you, music-wise?
I plan to release quality music and keep spreading love and light in every way possible. However, I would not put out any song that is not of good quality. I would take my time to release something nice for my fans. There is no rush. Right now, I have been recording in the studio, so people should be on the lookout for new content from me.
Some have said you intentionally portrayed yourself as vulnerable while in the house to attract sympathy from people. Was that your strategy?
I only went into the house to promote my music and I had to be myself to do that. Every other thing that happened just occurred that way naturally. I knew that people would see the kind of person I am through my music if I was real. I really don’t understand what people mean when they say I had a strategy. All I know is that I didn’t go into the house with a strategy.
A lot has been said about you and Erica. Do you in any way feel responsible for her disqualification?
No, I don’t. Everybody who watched the show knew how I felt about her and I reiterated it while I was in the house. However, right now, my focus is on my music and promoting myself.
