After 71 days of fierce competition, the Big Brother Naija Season 5 reality TV show has finally reached it’s climax. The show ended in jubilation for iCONS, supporters of Olamilekan Agbeleshe, popularly referred to as Laycon, who emerged as the winner of the Africa’s most popular reality TV show.
Laycon the talented rapper/singer beat 19 other housemates to win the coveted N85million worth of prizes after spending 71 days in the Big Brother house and entertaining millions of viewers across Africa.
Vee was the first of the last 5 housemates to be evicted tonight, followed by Neo and Nengi.
Leaving Laycon and Dorathy as the final two contestants before Ebuka the Host, announced Laycon as the final winner.
Shouts of jubilation rent the air in Lagos and across the nation as Ebuka announced the result. Laycon has been described as a child of Grace because he was the most underrated housemate. The high point of his stay in the house was the clash between him and Erica,who hurled unprintable insults on him.
