Laycon is a Lagos born and bred artiste who is signed to Fierce Nation entertainment. Laycon started out his musical journey very early, developing his art from Secondary school. He got introduced to Hiphop and rap music and later on crossed over to other genres of music. He says about his musical style “I diversify my creativity as much as I can and strive to get more versatile. I can rap and I can sing. I also play some music instruments so I’m a mixture of everything”.
Laycon’s consistency and creativity were noticed by several record labels and in late 2018 he signed to Fierce Nation, a budding record label known for their positive work with several young, talented Nigerian creatives.
In the second half of 2019, Laycon put out two weekly visual projects, titled “Any Given Monday I & II” which were compliments to his first label single release ‘Fierce’ featuring Chinko Ekun & Reminisce. Laycon kicks off 2020 with his much anticipated “Who Is Laycon” EP, released on April 2020. All Laycon’s songs are available for streaming and download on all major local and international platforms.
“Who is Laycon” is the second EP by young Nigerian singer/emcee Laycon. A perfect mash up of rap, afrobeats & pop cuts gives us a window into his versatility and skill. This audio journey of sorts sees Laycon open up about creative conflict, love and street cred. Already a buzzing name in the Nigerian new wave hip-hop/afrobeats scene with his previous releases, this E.P features collaborations with in-demand producers like Echo the Guru on ‘Come with me’ and QueBeat on ‘Fierce’. ‘Who is Laycon’ is filled with equal doses of dance-able and quotable moments.
