By 2020, Big Brother Naija winner, Laycon, was recognised by the Sickle Cell Foundation’s initiatives and advocacy and made him an ambassador for the Sickle Cell Global Advocate.
When he invaded the foundation’s premises and took it to his Instagram profile, Laycon vowed to use his platform to help remove the stigma attached to people with sickle cells and to raise more consciousness about it.
In his words via his Instagram page, I’m very pleased to receive the awards for ‘Ambassador Extraordinary’ and ‘Sickle Cell Global Advocate’ presented by the Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria (SCFN).
Your concern and dedication towards the proper care and control of sickle cell disorder in Nigeria is highly commendable.
I plan to use my God-given platform to create more awareness about Sickle Cell Disorder in Nigeria and beyond.
To everyone with sickle cell disorder, do not be intimidated.
You can achieve your dreams once you put your minds to it.
Never allow people define you.
