Big Brother Naija housemate, Laycon has opened up about his genotype to his fellow housemates, stating that he’s “SC” and doesn’t like to share the information with people to avoid pity.
The musician further explained that although he has hemoglobin that carries symptoms similar to those of Sickle Cell disease, they are dormant in his own case.
In his words,
“My genotype is SC.. It’s a sickle cell genotype but it’s dormant.
“I don’t like to tell people my genotype because I feel they will think I’m sick.”
An inquisitive Dorathy, asked if his genotype is the reason for his small body frame.
She said, “guess that is why you are thin”.
