Media Room Hub Features Laycon ‘The Icon President’, As Cover Star For December 2020 Edition

Media Room Hub is flaunting our very own singer, songwriter and rapper and most importantly, the number 1 finalist and winner of the 2020 edition of the Big Brother Naija lockdown season. He is no other person than Olamilekan Agbeleshe, the Icons’ universal president, who is best known as Laycon.

Here’s how Media Room Hub (MRH) introduced Laycon in their opening log:
If you watched the show, you probably won’t be surprised at the end results seeing how bright the 27-year-old was. Perhaps, why he was also loved and voted for the most. Being one of the most sought-after stars ideals for all sorts of endorsements, the rap act has achieved quite a lot for himself already.

… The Icons’ president was named the ambassador for youth in Ogun State, awarded a cash prize of 5 million naira and an apartment by the State governor. Also, he is the first BBNaija star to become an Oppo Nigeria brand ambassador.
Laycon didn’t stop there as he also signed endorsement deals with Origin Nigeria, GOTV Nigeria and Mentos Nigeria amongst others. At the moment, Laycon is shooting his first originals on showmax titled, “I AM LAYCON.”

Safe to say BBNaija has opened more doors for young Nigerians to thrive in their various endeavours in recent years than their government.
In the full interview with MRH, Laycon talks about his creative music enterprise, intended collaborations with Vee and co, his most memorable moments as a performing artiste alongside life in the Big Brother Naija lockdown house.

Laycon also talks about his relationship status, present and future plan and gives us his perspective on the aftermath of the peaceful EndSARS protest.

When quizzed on the story behind his hit single “Fierce”, Laycon had this to say:
“Fierce” was created courtesy of the record label that I’m signed to, Fierce Nation. While making the song, it was what I had at the fore. The song entails going for what you want regardless of whatever odds, ensuring that you have a goal and pursuing that goal with all energy, aggressiveness. That was really what I had in mind while creating the record. That’s about my kind of mentality which I want to extend to people. When I sang sho re pe bayi, shey wan bami soro…, I was implying that you can’t come at me just anyhow because I’ve got people around that’ll go all the way out for me and as people have seen, the people in my corner, team etc. It also feels like a prophecy because now I have fans who have my back, who’ll go all out for me.
