‘My Sudden Fame Put Me Into Depression’ – Omah Lay

‘My Sudden Fame Put Me Into Depression’ – Omah Lay 

Nigerian musician Stanley Omah Didia, popularly known as Omah Lay, has disclosed how his sudden fame affected his mental health.

The singer said this in a recent Afrobeats Podcast conversation with media personality Adesope Olajide.

Omah Lay claimed that he initially found the celebrity lifestyle difficult, but eventually grew accustomed to it and discovered how to move at his own pace.

He said: “At first I struggled, and it put me in a bad mental state because I was still trying to learn my ways.

“However, with time, I got comfortable and learned that I should move at my own pace.

“As soon as I realised that, I became much stronger and began to enjoy my life more.

“If I can put my vulnerabilities in my song, then I can talk about them. My music is all about my real life experiences, and I know the world is listening to it.”

Meanwhile, Omah Lay also revealed why real Afrobeat music is gradually dying.

The claim was made by the Port-Harcourt-born musician in a recent interview with H Steph.

It was providential for Omah Lay to go through such an experience in order to be able to aid individuals who are currently depressed, as he admitted that he was suicidal throughout his depression.

The musician claims that he included the experience in his song, which is unusual for Afrobeat musicians.

Omah Lay emphasised that Afrobeat is the reason real music is dying in his further debunking of the argument that it is not as deep as vibes.
