Fans of the winner of Big Brother Naija (Lockdown Edition), Lekan Agbeleshe, popularly known as Laycon, who want to know what goes on in the singer’s life, would soon satisfy their ‘hunger’. The rapper and reality star is expected to ‘travel’ to 26 non- African countries including the United Kingdom, France and Australia through his reality show, I Am Laycon.
Showmax subscribers in the UK, Italy, France, Australia and 23 other countries would be able to stream the reality show, which is the streaming platform’s first Nigerian original series.
The show would follow Laycon as he settles into a life of stardom and chases his music career. It would also feature cameos from fellow former BBN housemates such as Lilo Aderogba and Victoria Adeyele, aka Vee.
Laycon noted that he was excited to share his journey with his fans. He said, “Music, family, and friendship are extremely important to me and I am excited that my fans around the world can join me as I explore these different sides of me on the show.”
Speaking on the move to make the 10-episode reality series available to an international audience, MultiChoice’s Group CEO of General Entertainment and Connected Video, Yolisa Phahle, said, “Big Brother Naija has a huge Diaspora audience who followed Laycon’s journey while he was in the house. With the launch of his own reality show, it was important to us to make this content available to fans in as many countries as possible.”
Countries that would be able to access the show include Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Indonesia, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, Portugal, San Marino and Switzerland.
