The 2020 winner of the Big Brother Naija Reality TV Show Lockdown (Season Five), Olamilekan Agbelesebioba aka "Laycon", expressed appreciation for their tremendous work to the organizers of the show and the media.

Laycon, who said he was so excited about the life-changing status he was given by BBNaija, took @itslaycon to his Instagram page to thank the organizers, fellow housemates, sponsors, and the media.

Experience has given him, according to him, the greatest fan base ever.

“Thank BBnaija for the life-changing experience you have given to me.

“Big Appreciation to all my fellow housemates’ sponsors as well as media houses.

“I am grateful for the friendships forged, the experience earned, and the best fan base ever. ICONS, the world is ours!!!!’’ he wrote.

Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State also took @dapoabiodunmfr to his Instagram page to reveal an N5 million donation and a three-bedroom bungalow for Laycon.

He also named him the state's Youth Ambassador.

The governor expressed the expectation that the youth in the state will serve as a model for his good character, competence, good virtues, calmness, and honesty.

“It is hoped that you will help inspire our teeming youths to channel their energies towards positive engagements and shun vices, such as robbery, drug abuse, cultism, advance fee fraud, cybercrimes, and kidnapping, amongst other negative tendencies,” he wrote.

He described the conduct of Laycon in the House as a demonstration of the virtue of "Omoluabi" (person of integrity), which he said was the primary hallmark of an average indigenous Ogun State.

Gov. Abiodun noted that the winner of the BBnaija show was able to emerge unscathed and uninvolved in any controversy or unethical act, amid all odds, temptations and provocations.

“You have also demonstrated greatness with the way you carried out your assigned tasks in the House with comportment, intellectual responses to questions, and your spirit of fair play through which your academic achievement at the University of Lagos was earned.

“This has also shown that our universities can and still produce graduates who are found worthy in both character and learning.

“Indeed, what we are celebrating today is much more than the entertainment that the House provided, but what you represent: a rare combination of prodigious intellect, academic excellence, multi-faceted talents, character, and resilience.

“I believe your career will draw inspiration from great sons and daughters of Ogun, who have made their marks in their respective chosen careers,”
he added.

The governor reported that while in the House, he was pleased with Laycon 's attitude.

In order to be beneficial to themselves and to society in the future, Gov. Abiodun encouraged parents and guardians to help develop the talents of their children and caregivers.

He believed that parents and guardians should realize that outside the four walls of classrooms there was life, as entertainers are also effective men and women who contribute to national development.

He promised that his administration will continue to unleash the creative energies of the youth in the state, as well as facilitate and foster the continued growth of the nation by innovators, academics, researchers, entertainers, and creative artists.

The state government plans to develop a 'Entertainment Village,' according to him, where the talents of filmmakers, artists, and musicians will be nurtured for socio-economic growth.

For his youth-oriented initiatives, a noticeably enthusiastic Laycon thanked the governor and vowed to work with him to ensure that his administration's "Building Our Future Together" agenda is successful.

The fifth edition since the show started in 2006 was the BBnaija "lockdown" show where Laycon emerged victoriously.

Laycon walked away as the winner with N85 million, a two-bedroom flat, and a brand new SUV.

The 26-year-old singer won by winning 60 per cent of the votes cast by the crowd, leaving Dorathy with 21.85 per cent of the votes and Nengi with 15.03 per cent of the fellow finalists.

The year he left the University of Lagos, Agbelesebioba was the best student to graduate.
