Omah Lay Biography
On May 19 1997, in the city of Port Harcourt, Rivers state, Nigeria, the singer Stanley Omah Didia, now famous simply as Omah Lay, was born.
He came from a family of musicians, so it isn’t surprising he should display a singing gift as well. His grandfather was a percussionist to the late highlife singer Celestine Ukwu, and his father was a drummer, although not as accomplished.
Omah Lay’s singing career began several years ago at Marine Base in Port Harcourt, where he called himself Lil King. He learned to produce songs and became a producer to those in his locality.
He released a couple of songs, including “Do Not Disturb,” which attracted the attention of some industry chiefs. Songs like “Bad Influence” and “You” followed. At this point, it became markedly clear the songster is one of the talents to watch.
In May 2020, he released his debut EP titled “Get Layd,” which included previously released numbers like “Bad Influence” and “You.” The body of work was a hit with the public, earning the songster the coveted title of Apple Music’s New Artiste of The Month.
“Bad Influence,” “Talking To God” and “Tonight” are among the singer’s notable numbers.
Omah Lay had a brush with the Ugandan authorities recently when he was arrested for violating COVID-19 protocols and sent to the slammer alongside fellow singer Tems. His detention provoked condemnation from around the world, mostly from Nigeria, causing him to trend on Twitter. He has since been released.
Born in May 1997, Omah Lay is currently 22 years old. He will be 23 in May this year. He may be young, but he is doing pretty well as a solo artiste
Omah Lay is one of those artistes who adopted their legal names as part of their stage names. His real name is Stanley Omah Didia.
For one so young, the songster is doing pretty well as an entertainer. His net worth is said to be around $150,000, which translates to millions in naira.
Omah Lay has a girlfriend, but he has been incredibly discreet about it. Not so the girl, who loudly calls herself Omah’s Girlfriend on Twitter. In a post in late 2020, she had shared a clip of what appeared to be two of them together.
For caption, she had stated that Omah Lay had made it known to her that she is his girlfriend. A couple of crying emojis indicated she was emotional about him finally saying that.
She apologized because the clip wasn’t particularly clear. She tagged Omah Lay to it. Omah Lay did not refute her claims, so it is safe to say she is indeed his girlfriend. You can watch the clip below.
