Showmax’s first Nigerian original series is set to star ‘BBNaija’ winner, Laycon

Laycon is officially the king of reality shows in Naija. Premiering in February 2021, Showmax is introducing first-ever Nigerian Original, I Am LAYCON, starring the Big Brother Naija Season 5 winner, Lekan Agbeleshe aka Laycon.

The 26-year-old star and philosophy graduate had to hustle his way through life before landing a spot in Biggie’s house, where he wormed his way into the hearts of fans across the continent with his wit and lyrical genius.

According to Showmax, Laycon is inviting fans to follow his on his journey after BBNaija, as he settles into life as a star with his own reality TV show, while juggling his personal relationships and growing music career in one of Africa’s biggest cities, Lagos. Will he achieve his ambition to blow?

“I am excited to continue my new life journey and embrace the new responsibilities of evolving not just myself but everyone around me,” says Laycon. “I want you to come along for the ride as you get to see the growth that you have supported and loved.”

“Showmax is committed to supporting homegrown talent in Nigeria,” says Yolisa Phahle, CEO of MultiChoice’s Connected Video. “Laycon is a hugely inspirational figure and the perfect choice to kickstart our original content here. Fans across Africa tuned in to see what it takes to win Big Brother Naija, so we’re excited to take those fans along with Laycon on this journey as he adjusts to fame and life outside the house.” I Am LAYCON is the first Showmax Original shot in Nigeria
