Winner of BBNaija season 5 Lockdown edition, Olamilekan Agbeleshe aka Laycon has revealed that he participated in the reality show for fame and not necessarily for money as some critics speculated.

Laycon disclosed this in a recent chat with YouTuber, Korty.

Speaking on his regrets regarding the show, the singer noted that he has none since he achieved his original aim of getting auditioned for Big Brother Nigeria.
