Big Brother Naija Lockdown Edition winner, Olamilekan Moshood Agbeleshe aka Laycon has released a new album titled ‘Shall We Begin’ on Friday morning, April 30, and it has debuted at number three on the worldwide iTunes album chart.
The 12-track album is his first album after dropping several singles and two mixtapes- Any Given Monday (the playlist), Any Given Monday II.
The debut album also features previously hit singles such as Wagwan, and Fall For Me featuring YKB.
The up and coming rap artist has previously released two EPs, ‘Young, Black and Gifted, and ‘Who is Laycon’.
The album is Laycon’s first body of work after winning 85 million naira at BBNaija Season 5.
With features on a couple of songs – remixes of DJ Neptune’s ‘Nobody’ and Mr Real’s ‘Baba Fela’ – and the release of the video for ‘Hip Hop,’ Laycon took his fans from BBN to his personal space while trying, as much as possible, to run away from controversies that could mar that journey.
His massive fan base, known as the Icons took to Twitter to congratulate him on his debut.
Praising the artiste’s delivery, @buchi_laba tweeted, “Laycon #SWBOutNow Is Beautiful! He has always said the music is a priority and he delivered. I love the way he carefully picked his collabos!! Levels. It was the start of the album with his mum praying for him! AND SO SHE SPOKE! He rapped, sang and flexed, Shall We Begin”(sic)
@omokwalksola wrote, “The most amazing thing about Laycon’s album is, the more you keep listening, the more you keep having a new favourite song. #SWBtheAlbum.”
@OlisaOsega tweeted, “The reviews I’m seeing on Laycon’s album is heartwarming. Everyone has one or two good things to say about the album. Less than 12hrs since the album was released, it’s making numbers already in different countries. Please don’t stop streaming, let’s get the numbers even higher.”
