Laycon emerges as the winner of Big Brother Naija season 5

After battling it out for a gruelling 70 days in the Big Brother house, 26-year old Laycon has emerged the winner of Big Brother Naija season 5. What started off as a stiff competition between 20 housemates ended on Sunday with Laycon, a clear favourite on the show, going home with the grand prize of N85 million (30 million cash prize, an Innoson Motors Jeep and a two-bedroom flat by Revolution Now Properties).

Other finalists included Vee, who was the first to be evicted on Sunday, followed by Neo, Nengi and Dora who was the first runner up. Before the winner was announced, viewers were treated to entertaining performances from fast-rising stars, Fireboy_dml and Rema and later, 30 Billion Gang mates, Mayorkun and Davido.

The Big Brother Naija lockdown edition began on June 30, with 20 contestants all vying for the grand prize of N85 million.The votes were determined by viewers and each housemate faced eviction every week till the 70th day, where Laycon was announced winner of the season. Before the announcement, he was washed about how he felt being among the top two. The musician said he was surprised to make top 2. Laycon said he just came to the house to promote his EP. This explains the shock on his face the moment his name was called out as the winner of the show.
