BBNaija: Laycon Reveals He Has ‘Sickle Cell’,Making Him Trend On Twitter


Big Brother Naija housemate, Laycon has revealed that he has a milder symptom of the sickle cell anaemia – the SC genotype.

He explained on the reality show that he has haemoglobin that carries symptoms similar to those of Sickle Cell disease, but milder.

According to Laycon: “My blood group is Sickle Cell, I don’t like to tell people my genotype because I feel they will think I’m sick.”

Responding, Dorathy said Laycon’s genotype could be the reason for his slim frame.
