A King’s Manifesto: Laycon Unveils ‘BIOBA’ Album, Reigns Supreme”


There is a musician who represents the notion that luck occurs when your opportunity meets your preparation in the dynamic arena of Nigerian music, where skill and hard work frequently intersect with chance. Laycon, real name Olamilekan Agbeleshe, personifies this concept with his quick climb to popularity and indisputable talent in the Nigerian music business.

Laycon rose to notoriety after winning the fifth season of the popular reality television show Big Brother Naija in 2020.

Laycon connected with the Nigerian audience, causing a ripple effect that lasted far beyond the reality show. Instead of resting on his success, Laycon exploited his newfound platform to establish his presence in the music industry. He published his debut album, “Shall We Begin,” with an unyielding work ethic and vision, heralding the dawn of a new era.

Laycon returns two years later with his sophomore album, “BIOBA,” which means “Like A King.” The album serves as a declaration of Laycon’s self-belief in his ability.

Laycon’s 12-track project, featuring prominent Nigerian musicians Peruzzi and Oladapo, takes you on an intimate journey through his adventures, hardships, and successes. Each tune is a window into Laycon’s soul, loaded with contemplation and personal growth.

“Bioba” emphasizes him embracing his place as music royalty, motivating us all to embrace our own preparation, take our opportunity, and remember success as a constant process of self-discovery and progress rather than a destination.
