Ever since Laycon emerged as Big Brother Naija Season 5 winner, its been elevation gallore for him. Brands has been endorsing him back and forth and more are looking forward to having his name on their brand.

 

Recently, he commenced his reality tv series ‘I Am Laycon’ on showmax that is available for viewing in over 72 countries around the world. Little wonder world renowned Time Magazine went for him when they needed someone to profile Davido in their recently published ‘100 Next Most Influential Poeple In The World.’

 

Davido made the list as the only African musician and he was profiled by no other person but Icons President Laycon. Here is what Laycon wrote about Davido:

 

‘Davido is one of the biggest voices in Afrobeats because his music connects with people, often in ways that transcend his expectations. When he released the song “FEM” in 2020, a title that loosely translates to “shut up” in Yoruba, he didn’t know it would become a major #EndSARS protest anthem, as youth banded together to demand the government take action to end police brutality in Nigeria last October. Officials responded by sending politicians to give speeches. We told the government to keep quiet unless they had something sensible to add—the ethos of “FEM” was directly relatable to that moment.
You can tell Davido puts 100% into every song he makes. And the results are clear: his album A Good Time surpassed a billion streams in 2020. Afrobeats is a worldwide phenomenon, and Davido is one of many Nigerian artists who has made that possible; now more and more artists, from Nicki Minaj to Young Thug, want to work with him.
By bringing Afrobeats to the global stage, he’s paved the way for people like me.”

Typical Laycon, humble to the core. Why fans of the Big Brother Naija show turned up and voted for him massively to win the show with a record total of 60% of the total votes collated.

 

I look forward to seeing Laycon on the list some days. It would be well deserving considering his influence on his fans since he emerged winner of the Big Brother Naija Season 5 show. There is hardly a week he does not trend and he is yet to release a new song. Consider the waves a new project from Laycon would attract when it drops.
