Big Brother Naija ‘Lockdown’ winner, Olamilekan Agbeleshe better known as Laycon, has recounted the hard times he faced before hitting fame.
He said that when he was still a student at the University of Lagos in 2013, he used toilet water to drink garri because he was starving and had no money to buy food.
Laycon shared the past experience through his Twitter page and noted that he used toilet tap water because there was no money to buy sachet water which was 5 naira at the time.
The 30-year-old reality TV star said there was no sugar or groundnut in the garru and as he was soaking it, his eyes were filled with tears

Meanwhile, in another news…
An up-and-coming Nigerian singer, Bank Alat has claimed that he and Afrobeats star, Fireboy DML are old-time friends who experienced struggles together.
He took to Twitter (X) to celebrate Fireboy’s 28th birthday on Monday February 5, and reminded him of the time they used to drink garri together.
The young artiste stated that he is entitled to the ‘Peru’ hit maker’s money and as such he deserves to be helped out of the trenches.
