Why I Choose Music Over Football – Laycon

Olamilekan Moshood Agbeleshe aka Laycon recently revealed that he chose music over football. In an interview with media personality Olawunmi Oyedeji, the reality TV star said although he was a talented footballer, he had always known music was the way.

Laycon Reveals He Chose Music Even Though He Was A Talented Footballer

“When I left secondary school for the university, I knew it was music. There was a time I had to choose between music and football. But I went for music. I’m talking of around 2008, during that time Manchester United won the champions league and Mikel Obi was playing for Chelsea.

My brothers would advise me to choose football because they knew how talented I was and the money involved. But instead of considering football due to their sentiment, I saw their choice for me as an encouragement to pursue music. With that sense, I was committed to making it work by all means,” Laycon told Oyedeji.

Laycon said while his dad wanted him to be an engineer, while his mom wanted him to be a lawyer.

“It wasn’t like I just said music like that and threw it at them that way. It was gentle, but ultimately I knew they were going to give it a second thought. My parents were skeptical because I just used the law my mom wanted me to study to escape. Was first in the science department but I didn’t enjoy learning. I just told her I wanted to be a lawyer, not an engineer. She then came to my school and requested me to be moved to the art department. She had to go to the school because they didn’t want to allow me, they said I was doing well but I was just reading to pass”.


Laycon emerged as the winner of BBNaija Season five lockdown edition in September 2020. The upcoming singer topped the voting chart with 60% votes followed by the first runner-up Dorathy who had 21.85 votes.
