Ace Nigerian singer, Stanley Omah Didia, popularly called Omah Lay says his sudden rise to fame affected his mental health.
Omah Lay stated this during an interview with media personality, Adesope Olajide, on Afrobeats Podcast, where he opened up about his struggle with fame.
The ‘Soso’ crooner said at the initial stage it was challenging, but he started getting comfortable with the reality of being a celebrity and began to move at his own pace.
The 26-year-old artiste said:
“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 comfortable and learned that I should move at my own pace. As soon as I realised that, I became much stronger and began to enjoy my life more.
“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 the world is listening to it.”
