Showmax lines up Laycon series
MultiChoice VoD service Showmax is set to launch an original series about Big Brother Naija star Laycon in February.
I Am Laycon will feature Big Brother Naija S5 winner Lekan Agbeleshe (aka Laycon) as he takes viewers on his journey to fame.
It will follow Laycon after the reality show as he settles into life as a star with his own reality TV show, while juggling his personal relationships and growing a music career in one of Africa’s biggest cities, Lagos.
Yolisa Phahle, CEO of general entertainment at MultiChoice, said: “Showmax is committed to supporting homegrown talent in Nigeria. Laycon is a hugely inspirational figure and the perfect choice to kickstart our original content here.
“Fans across Africa tuned in to see what it took to win Big Brother Naija, so we’re excited to take those fans along with Laycon on this journey as he adjusts to fame and life outside the house.”
Laycon added: “I am excited to continue my new life journey and embrace the new responsibilities of evolving not just myself but everyone around me. I want you to come along for the ride as you get to see the growth that you have supported and loved.”
