Omah Lay says ‘sudden fame’ affected his mental health



Nigerian artiste, Stanley Omah Didia,  popularly known as Omah Lay, revealed recently that his sudden stardom had effects on his mental health.

He revealed this during the latest episode of the Afrobeats Podcast where he  stated that 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 realized that, I became much stronger and started to enjoy my life more.”

He also stated he had no issues coming out to the public to talk about his vulnerabilities.

“If I can put my vulnerabilities in my song, then I can talk about them. My music is all about my real-life experiences, and I know everybody in the world is listening to it.”

Omah Lay had earlier opened up about being suicidal and depressed.
