Omah Lay (KeyQaad/Sire)
8/4/22

WHAT IT IS: With his mesmerizing vocals, evocative storytelling and catchy rhymes, Omah Lay is one of Nigeria’s most-talked-about up-and-comers. The 24-year-old singer/producer, born Stanley Omah Didia, has developed his own brand of Afro-fusion that pulls from his deep personal history with West Africa’s percussion-heavy highlife genre, as well as the popular sounds of his generation, from classic rap to the Afrobeats sounds flourishing in his home base of Lagos. Following his EPs Get Layd and What Have We Done, and his collaborations with Justin Bieber on the remix of “Peaches” and their joint release “attention,” Lay continues to carve his own path with “i’m a mess” from his latest project, Boy Alone.
