I stopped being religious after making money – Singer, Omah Lay

Award-winning Nigerian musician, Stanley Omah Didia, known professionally as Omah Lay has said he stopped being overtly religious once he became rich.

The Afropop singer said he grew up in a Christian home and spent a lot time in church while growing up but all that changed when he hit fame.

Omah Lay, who stated this in a recent interview with media personality, Wunmi Bello, said he chose to focus on humanity and doesn’t care about religion anymore.

He also revealed that he contemplated converting to Islam at some point despite being born into a Christian family.

The ‘Soso’ crooner noted that he questions the teachings in the Holy Books even though they sound true, adding that he still believes in the existence of God.

Omah Lay said, “As soon as I made money, I just switched; I just believed in God and became more human than religious. I don’t just enjoy religion anymore.

“I grew up in a Christian home. I spent a lot of time in church. And at some point, I was going to convert to Islam. But now I’m at the point where it’s just me and God. Not religion. Because I really don’t know anything about religion. That’s the problem. These holy books and what everybody is saying, I know it sounds true but these are just books that I can not find evidence that this was written by God or his servants.

“So, I just feel like I don’t know anything in as much as I know the bible, Jesus and Allah. But at the end, I don’t have evidence. The only evidence I have is that there’s a God who is moving me. I know that there must be something that’s somewhere that’s in charge of this whole thing. I believe it’s God.”
