    Here are some of the success rules I detected from my careful study of this latest superstar in the Nigerian entertainment scene.

    Have seen how he came from underdog , a poor background, contesting among a Billionaire’s son, more established people , even Laycon never expected he could have won , as he only came to promote his music.

    Here are the success rules below.

    From Odunlade Adekola, Kingking lekan, Praiz, Broda Shaggi, Tunde Ednut , Yul Edochie , Aycomedian and so many Celebrities.

    This is the first time So many Celebrities openly choose and endorse one of the house mate Laycon Massively as favourite that it became clear this man was well ahead of the rest.

    4. *His Intelligence , Communication Skills*

    His Intelligence Worked well for him and connected to a lot people .

    His way of Presentation, humility, and emotional intelligence in handling crisis , Erica lashing out at him and he not reacting and handling that well got so many more fans and supporters.

    This things are powerful skills you need for Success in today’s Business world.

    5. *Learn Before You Earn*

    Laycon was born and raised in Lagos State, Nigeria. He is from Bajuwen, Odeda, Ogun State.

    From 2012 to 2016, he went to University of Lagos where he graduated with a second class upper degree in philosophy.

    In 2019, he was signed into Fierce Nation record label and released Reminisce and Chinko Ekun-assisted single “Fierce” off his second EP Who Is Laycon?.On 28 August 2020, he released “Senseless”.

    This was what brought him to the Big Brother Nigeria House to promote his dreams ,his music.
