Omah Lay finally addresses comments about his music being ‘depressing’

Nigerian music star, Omah Lay, has reacted to remarks by his fans that his style of music belongs in a category termed Afro-depression.

The artiste, born Stanley Omah Didia, said he doesn’t care about whatever tag his music is given as long as fans are enjoying what he sings.

Speaking in a recent interview with The Beat FM, London in the United Kingdom, Omah Lay said that he would never argue with the opinions of fans.

The ‘Soso’ crooner said he makes art and leaves the world to enjoy it instead of going into a debate with people about whether it is ‘afro-depression’ or not.

Omah Lay said; “I just make my music how I want to make my music. I try as much as possible to stay away from titles and everything the world is trying to put on you. Because as my guy would always say, ‘When the smokes clear, then you see clearly.

“So when you identify with those things [titles and tags] it just… I just make my music, I don’t care what anybody wants to tag it to enjoy it as long as you enjoy the music. If you feel like it’s Afro-depression, I am okay with that as long as you enjoy the music. Some other people would dance to it.

“It’s art. That’s what I make and I just leave the world to enjoy how they want to enjoy it. The fans have their own opinions, I would never argue with that. If that’s how they enjoy it, that’s how they enjoy it.”
