Laycon, the rapper and former BBNaija winner, says thoughts of losing his mum is his greatest fear.


The musician reflects on his career, fears and other topics in a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, the media personality.

Laycon said despite realising the inevitability of death, he dreads the day his mother would pass away.

“Losing my mum, that’s it,” he said when asked what he’s most afraid of in life.


“It’s something that I dread because you know it’s going to happen at a point, that’s if I don’t leave before she does. That’s one thing that I dread.”

The ‘Fierce’ crooner also addressed those who expect him to live a “perfect life” without any vulnerability due to his perceived intelligent personality.

“Something everybody needs to understand, because I am naturally intelligent doesn’t mean I’m not human, doesn’t mean I can’t love, doesn’t mean I can’t show my emotions, doesn’t mean I can’t be hurt,” he added.


“That’s also what I’m trying to let people know, that I am who I am and a part of me is somebody who can get hurt. You may not want to hurt me but I’ll be hurt, that doesn’t make you a bad person if I get hurt by your actions. Your actions are genuinely pure, but if I’m hurt by it it means I have to deal with it.

“That’s also something that you as a human being would also have to figure out, because somebody’s actions hurt you doesn’t mean those actions are bad.”

Born Olamilekan Agbeleshioba, the singer rose to prominence after he won the BBNaija fifth edition.

Laycon has continued to enjoy fame in the country’s entertainment industry with beautiful projects as well as endorsement deals.


In September 2021, he released ‘I Am Laycon’, his second album. This was after his debut project Shall We Begin’ in April.
