The drama continues on I Am LAYCON as episodes six to ten of the record-breaking show are now streaming first and exclusively on Showmax.
In the second half of the show, fans get an even more intimate glimpse into Laycon’s personal life as we see him weather ill health.
Laycon also gets vulnerable as he shares how much he misses his father, particularly in light of having found fame in the Big Brother Naija house.
“Someone I’ve known my whole life and I haven’t spent time with him or seen him in three years. I’m just seeing his picture: it brings back memories and having ideas of how he would have reacted to everything that is happening to me at the moment.”
But it’s not all gloom as fans also get a closer look at the special relationship between Laycon and his crew. There are also cameo appearances from music artists Mr Real and Zlatan Ibile for a music shoot. In addition, there’s an exclusive Laycon music video in an episode just for the fans.
The second half of I Am LAYCON launched on Showmax at midnight with the hashtag #IAmLayconShowmax, quickly making the top 10 Twitter Nigeria trend list as fans tweeted in excitement.
