‘My sudden fame put me in bad mental state’, says Omah Lay


By Ayobami Okerinde

Popular Nigerian artiste, Stanley Omah Didia, popularly known as Omah Lay, has revealed that his sudden fame affected his mental health.

Speaking during the latest episode of the Afrobeats Podcast, the ‘Soso Crooner’ stated he struggled at first with fame but found his balance later.

His words: “It was a jump; 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 more comfortable and learned that I’m running my race and that I should move at my own pace.

“There was pressure. You don’t expect to move from one crappy laptop or spending all your life in the studio to being a global superstar. It’s just like they brought you from just starting music production to this right here (points at equipment in the studio): ‘You go lost.’

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