Biography

Nigerian music sensation Stanley Omah Didia, better known by his stage name –Omah Lay is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He gained widespread recognition in early 2020 after his self-produced single, “Bad Influence”, went viral on social media.

Lay expressed his support for the #EndSARS campaign in Nigeria. He told Harper’s Bazaar, “People need to know these protests are purely about the people, with no political undertone whatsoever. Police harass, extort, beat, and kill us just for being young and trendy, with no consequences. This has gone on long enough, and we are saying enough is enough and demanding government action.”
He is also known for being featured alongside Alpha P on the official Masterkraft‘s remix of Justin Bieber‘s 2021 single, “Peaches“, as well as another collaboration with the latter on “Attention” in 2022. 

Early Life 

         
Lay started out in a rap group under the stage name “Lil King.” He later moved on to songwriting and music producing, which went largely uncredited, and as a result of that, he released “Do Not Disturb” in April 2019. “Hello Brother” was released a month after.
He signed to a record label named KeyQaad in June 2019, and took a seven month break.
 During the break, he worked on his debut EP, Get Layd. He told OkayAfrica, “I started working on it August [of 2019]. At some point I had to go off social media, stay away from a lot of things and keep my head straight to get the project right. The first song I’d recorded on Get Layd was ‘Bad Influence.’ I’d done that way before the songs we had to put on the project.” Following the break, he released “Bad Influence,” which became the most streamed Nigerian song on Apple Music at the end of 2020.
