Opinion: One Reason Why Laycon Might not Win the Grand Prize Despite His Popularity and Support.
The Big Brother Naija Lockdown Edition is coming to an end in two weeks time. There are seven housemates left in the reality show.
They are Laycon, Trikytee, Ozo, Neo, Dorathy, Nengi, and Vee.
Laycon is the most popular housemates among the seven, he also has the overwhelming support of viewers of the show.
Many Nigerian celebrities have declared support for him. It is most likely that Laycon will emerge as the winner of the Big Brother Naija Lockdown Edition.
However, there is one reason why Laycon might not emerge as the winner of the reality show despite his popularity and support.
Laycon is popular on social media, yes, but can social media popularity win the grand prize? Definitely no.
Many people who are declaring support for him on social media are not actually voting for him. Many just feel like joining the crowd. Some are using Laycon to chase clout and gain followers on social media.
It should be noted that the show is coming to an end soon and five housemates will make it to the final week. Any of the five can emerge as the winner of the game through votes.
Many fan base is saving money for the last week to vote massively for their favorite.
Some housemates are not very popular on social media but their supporters are doing their homework underground.
For instance, last week’s eviction shows that Ozo has dedicated supporters spending massively on him but not making noise on social media.
Despite Kiddwaya and Dorathy’s popularity on social media, Ozo still emerged as the winner of the poll with a wide margin.
Nengi, Neo, and Vee are already in the final, and their supporters outside are already planning of voting massively next week. There are ready to spend up to 20 million Naira on votes, knowingly fully well that the grand prize is 85 million Naira.
The reality is that the Laycon fan base must be strategic and tactical.
They must build on his popularity and canvass votes for him.
Laycon is also up for eviction this week, he will surely escape this week but next week voting is not a joke.
People are planning ahead for it.
What is your take on this?
Who is going to win the grand prize? Laycon or Nengi?
