Big Brother Naija Season 5 winner Olamilekan Agbeleshe, popularly known as Laycon, has revealed why he took a break from music.

The rapper said he took a sabbatical because music was “no longer fun.”

Laycon disclosed this in a recent interview with popular media personality J. Malone.

The ‘Fierce’ crooner said he started doing music at an early age.

He said: “I have been doing music ever since I can remember, to be honest.

“Music was fun. Music has always been fun for me, which was another reason why I took a break; it stopped being fun.

“Ever since I was little, I always loved singing. I just listen to people’s music, and I just want to sing it. I didn’t think about creating mine until I was like 13. I actually just exchanged these people’s lyrics for mine. I still used their flows and rhythms. And that was when I started writing music.

“I started putting out music in 2012 when I got into the university. But my first major project was in 2016, titled ‘The Young, Black and Gifted’ EP.”
