BBNaija 2020: Scarlet Gomez opens on paying celebrity to support Laycon


It was no surprise that Laycon emerged Big Brother Naija, 2020 winner because of the massive support he got from Nigerian celebrities all over the world.

His Social media pages handler, actress and singer, Scarlet Gomez, has revealed that none of the many celebrities who supported Laycon were paid.

She cleared the speculation, adding that they all love Laycon organically.

She told Punch Newspaper “I had different notable moments throughout the journey. The support we got from celebrities was one of the highlights for me. We didn’t have to pay any of them. We welcomed them on his Instagram page every day. The celebrities love him ‘organically’. Even when fans knew he wasn’t perfect, they still showed him love. To be honest, I would miss handling Laycon’s social media accounts. Having to connect with fans was another highlight for me. It was fun seeing fans love him regardless of who he was.”

Recounting how she got the offer to maintain the reality TV star’s social media accounts, the singer said, “The team was looking for the best person they knew to handle Laycon’s page and they thought I was in the best position to do it. I also took a liking to him. If you know Laycon personally, you would realise there is nothing to hate about him. You would fall in love with him. He is a humble, honest and down-to-earth person. The love I have for him made me go the extra mile, knowing that the world had to hear his story.”
