Big Brother Naija housemate Laycon has revealed on the reality show that he has symptons of Sickle Cell Anaemia.
He said that he has haemoglobin that carries symptoms similar to those of Sickle Cell disease, but milder.
“My blood group is Sickle Cell, I don’t like to tell people my genotype because I feel they will think I’m sick.”
Reacting to this revelation, his fellow housemate Dorathy said :
“Guess that is why you are thin,”
Nigerians have gone on Twitter to react to this revelation, causing the hashtag #LayconIsSc to trend.
A number of people brought back the body-shaming incident with Erica and used the opportunity to call her out afresh, making Erica trend too.
