Omah Lay claimed that suffering through sadness was divine since it gave him the opportunity to support those who are now depressed.
The 25-year-old added that he would keep writing sincere songs about his experiences.
In his words, he said;
“I was at the verge of…I was suicidal, mahn. Trust me, I was really fcked up. But I think I have to be there to actually help the people who are there right now to get out of that place.
I mean it will take a real person like me to go there and then make music out of it and talk about it so openly how I’m a mess, how I think and how I’m fcked up and everything.
“I’m not sure you will find afrobeats artists who do that right now. Everybody is out there saying afrobeats are not so deep, ‘afrobeats are just vibes and sh*t’. Nah. That’s why everybody is just doing hype. The real music is dying.”
