Reports on the social media indicate that BBNaija season 5 winner, Olamilekan Agbeleshe has donated a huge sum of money to sickle cell patients.
The reality star and musician had earlier disclosed that his genotype was SC. The hemoglobin (Hb) SC genotype is seen in persons who have inherited the gene for hemoglobin S from one parent and the gene for hemoglobin C from the other.
According to @TohaiNigeria on Instagram, the 26-year-old donated for the screening of newborn for Sickle Cell disease and associated treatments for children in low resources settings in Nigeria.
“Thank you @itslaycon for donating to sickle cell warriors support in Nigeria. As an organization advocating for newborn screening for Sickle Cell disease and associated treatments for children in low resources settings in Nigeria, we appropriate your generosity. God bless you big.” @TohaiNigeria wrote.
Another lady on twitter also testified to how the rapper donated quietly to the sickle cell and also how her family benefited from Laycon’s generosity.
The Twitter user wrote: “My cousin took her son to sickle cell foundation idiaraba to get the drug for her son, she was told to pay little amount of money cos Laycon gave them money to treat SS patient. She cried and she was so happy cos her president loves them. Thanks, Laycon. #icons #LayconComeOnline.”
