Winner of Big Brother Naija lockdown season 5 edition, Olamilekan Agbeleshebioba, popularly known as Laycon is said to have donated to sickle cell warriors support in Nigeria.
It would be recalled that the Icon president revealed his genotype during the show, saying he has a milder SC which means he is a sickle cell patient, who rarely experience crisis.
Sharing the information of Twitter, Tohai Nigeria, an organization advocating for newborn screening for Sickle Cell disease and associated treatments for children in low resources in the country, appreciated his generosity.
His act of charity was only made public by a Twitter user whose family benefited from Laycon’s kindness.
The Twitter user wrote: “My cousin took her son to sickle cell foundation idiaraba to get drug for her son , she was told to pay little amount of money cos Laycon gave them money to treat SS patient. She cried and she was so happy cos her president love them. Thanks Laycon. #icons #LayconComeOnline.”

As an organization advocating for newborn screening for Sickle Cell disease and associated treatments for children in low resources settings in Nigeria, we appropriate your generosity.
