Ex-BBNaija star reveals how he almost joined West Ham

Big Brother Nigeria, Season 5 winner Laycon has revealed that he could’ve been a footballer with English Premier League side West Ham United if he wasn’t into music already.

The soft spoken rapper warmed himself into the hearts of Africans inside the BBNaija house and has a huge following with his fans tagged as ‘ICONS.’ His singles were a great success and he followed it up with a dramatic album titled ‘Shall We Begin.’

Speaking on Adesope Live, Laycon revealed: ‘My brother wanted me to be a footballer because he had an agent friend out there with West Ham United. He wanted me to make a video and send it to them and if they liked it, I would be invited for trial and probably get signed.

‘So, if I’m not a musician, I’d probably have been a footballer and playing in the English Premier League but it has always been music for me.’

Laycon is tipped for greatness and already projected to be among major awards at the end of the year.
