Laycon and Vee
Big Brother Naija Lockdown winner, Laycon has now opened up about the controversy generated by the revelation of his SC genotype.
Recall that his fans had taken to Twitter to lash out at Erica after accusing her of knowing Laycon’s genotype which was the reason why she insulted him, saying he will not be able to live past a certain age.
The singer in an interview Inspiration FM this morning, revealed that the only person he remembers telling about being Sickle Cell was his friend Vee.
According to him, that is because he knew she would respect the information.
He also advised that there is a need to start creating more awareness about SC genotypes, that he is not the kind of guy that likes to get things out of pity.
Recall that last week, Erica was under fire as Laycon’s genotype stirred controversy after a video of Erica insulting him about not taking his drug surfaced online, and it got people slamming her for being “insensitive” and using it against him.
