BBNaija 2020: Laycon never told me he was Sickle Cell carrier – Erica
Disqualified Big Brother Naija season 5 Housemate, Erica Nlewedim has denied reports that the winner of the show, Laycon, told her he was a Sickle Cell carrier.
We had reported that the UNILAG graduate, had confirmed that his sickle cell status.
According to him, “My blood group is Sickle Cell, I don’t like to tell people my genotype because I feel they will think I’m sick.”
Following the development, Erica was dragged after many social media users claimed Laycon told her about his health issues which she used against him during the altercation that led to her disqualification.
However, Erica in a video via her Instagram account on Tuesday morning dismissed the claims, adding that she never knew Laycon had Sickle Cell.
She said, ”I have been seeing a lot of crazy stuff on the internet saying that I knew about Laycon’s sickness and I used it against him.
“Come on guys, in all my time in that house, I am sure you have seen the kind of person that I am. I am a very emotional person.
“I am very sensitive to people’s feelings. If I do things wrong, I always go back and apologize.
“There is no time I have ever used whatever someone says to me against them because I know how bad I would feel if someone does that to me.
“Laycon never told me he was a sickle Cell. There is no time he ever said that to me and he himself knows that he never said that to me. Left to me, Laycon was fine, he was alright.
It was just bottled up emotions. That is it. That’s what happened.”
