Omah Lay Opens Up On How Real Music is Dying

The award-winning singer is of the opinion that music these days is beginning to lack depth and proper context.

Sensational Nigerian singer and songwriter Stanley Omah Didia, popularly known as Omah Lay, has spoken out about music losing its core value.

The Port Harcourt-bred act who released his 14-track debut album 'Boy Alone," which featured heavyweights like Justin Bieber and Tay Iwar in the second half of 2022, has constantly made it known that the project was born out of pain.

In a recent interview with Steph TV, the singer reemphasized the fact that he battled with mental health instabilities at a point in his life that even got to the point where he contemplated committing suicide. According to the singer, a lot of music released in recent times (especially in the Afrobeats genre) is more focused on vain things, making the music lack the depth it's supposed to have. He said:

Everybody is out there saying Afrobeats is not so deep and it's just vibes. This is because everyone is out there making hype the real music is dead. That's why people like me will always strive. I'm one of the realest you can find and I'm putting it on Afrobeats
