Big Brother Naija locked down housemate, Laycon Laycon trends on twitter after revealing he’s sickle cell. He has a milder symptom of the sickle cell anaemia – the SC genotype.
Laycon 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.”
Dorathy Responding, said his genotype could be the reason he’s slim.
“Guess that is why you are thin,” Dorathy said.
After hearing the revelation from Laycon, some Nigerian has taken to twitter to slam Erica for previously body shaming Laycon.
