The ‘Soso’ crooner made this revelation during a recent interview with Steph TV, as he spoke on his mental health struggles, and how he incorporates his battle with depression into his music.

Omah Lay mentioned that he was in a really bad place at the time, and considered committing suicide to end his suffering all at once.

However, he stated that it was imperative for him to go through that dark stage so he can help other depressed people overcome depression.

The 25-year-old singer 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.”

Omah Lay also shared that it takes a real musician to make art from pain, and that there are not a lot of Afrobeats artists making such music.

“I am 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,” he added.

He further advised people who go through things to always take time to fix their minds because life is beautiful when you feed your mind right.
