Big Brother Naija housemate Laycon’s revelation that he has the SC genotype, has sparked controversy on social media.

 

The graduate of Psychology, one of the housemates still in the race for the ultimate prize, confirmed that he is a sickle cell carrier.

 

According to Laycon: “My blood group is Sickle Cell, I don’t like to tell people my genotype because I feel they will think I’m sick.”

 

Most viewers had the notion that he had revealed it to Erica, who was disqualified after a uproar with the Fierce rapper, and she took advantage him during the fight.

Some fans, however, are convinced the Unilag Alumnus made the information known so as to win ‘sympathy votes’, although there is also the debate that he was already one of the  favourites to go home with the N85m prize money on Sunday.

Here are some of their reactions below:

One @itsUchman said: Funny how you guys keep saying “now Laycon is definitely the winner”. Omo even if he wasn’t disqualified and they didn’t have a fight or we didn’t know his BG, baba had this show on lock from the 1st or 2nd week. Margins might have been different but he was a sure winner.

 

Popular twitter Doctor, @DrOlufunmilayo opined that: Laycon said yesterday he is SC genotype. This is why he’s skinny. Seems only Erica knew. Yet she bodyshamed him. She mocked him for not taking his drugs in a week and that he will die before age 50. I’m in tears about this. That girl is the worst thing to ever come on that show.

One other @drteepie explained that: If you use other people’s problems you have been told in confidence as a fighting weapon during an argument, you are worst than the devil. What Erica said to Laycon re his SC status is the lowest I have seen of anyone.

 

Another user, @ukonu_obinna had quite a strong opinion. He said: People are just insensitive, which one is Laycon is SC “No wonder he looks that way”. I feel that’s just rude to say,. Like this doesn’t sit well with me. Can’t you just empathize, and leave out how he looks? Gosh!
