Why I didn’t sign Omah Lay after listening to his hit song – Olamide reveals



YBNL record label founder, Olamide Adedeji has revealed the reason why he was not able to sign to his label, Afropop sensation, Stanley Omah Didia, best known as Omah Lay.

During an interview with UK-based broadcaster, Adesope Olajide, Olamide narrated how he was listening to one of Omah Lay’s hit songs and he loved it to a point that he reached out to the 26-year-old.

According to him, he wanted to sign the ‘Understand’ crooner in the early days of his career, but the singer informed him that he already had a contract with another label.

He said; “Somebody sent me Omah Lay’s song, ‘Bad Influence,’ I had to like search for him on Instagram. I messaged him that I want to sign him but he told me that he got a [recording] deal already.”

Speaking further, the rap star also revealed that he was depressed for about four years after running out of hit songs. Olamide, however, said he got his “swag back” after releasing hits like ‘Wo’ and ‘Motigbana.’

Till date, songs like WO, MOTIGBANA, are like magic to me. I thought I could never get myself again. I was going haywire,” he said.
