Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) finalist, Laycon, has left housemates worried about his health after he revealed that he has sickle Cell.
As every housemate disclosed what their blood group was, Laycon said he does not like to reveal his genotype because when he does people think he is sick.
He went on to disclose to Dorathy and Vee in a conversation that he is sickle cell anemic. He has been in a cheerful mood throughout the program and his energy level didn’t even make people suspect him to be having sickle cell in his genotype.
Dorathy quickly asked;
“so, that is why you are thin!”
