The BBNaija winner who also doubles as a musician with a number of hit songs to his name, revealed at a point in the reality TV show that he is of the SC genotype. Thus his decision to give towards a cause for sickle cell patients patients isn’t surprising, and he did this on the quiet.
His act of charity was however made public by a Twitter user, @EkunBolaji, whose family benefited from Laycon’s kindness.
“My cousin took her son to sickle cell foundation idiaraba to get drug for her son , she was told to pay little amount of money cos Laycon gave them money to treat SS patient. She cried and she was so happy cos her president love them. Thanks Laycon. #icons #LayconComeOnline.”
TOHAI Nigeria, a health access initiative, also disclosed Laycon’s contribution, writing:
“Thank you @itsLaycon for donating to sickle cell warriors support in Nigeria. As an organization advocating for newborn screening for Sickle Cell disease and associated treatments for children in low resources settings in Nigeria, we appropriate your generosity. God bless you big.”
