Nigerian singer Stanley Omah Didia, popularly known as Omah Lay, has shared his views on religion in a recent interview with Wunmi Bello.
Omah Lay disclosed that he once contemplated converting to Islam but eventually distanced himself from religious practices after achieving financial success.
The artist expressed his belief in God but revealed that he no longer finds joy in organized religion.
He explained, “As soon as I made money I just switched, I just believed in God and respected God, and then I became more human than just religious. I just do not enjoy religion anymore, and I grew up in a Christian home and spent a lot of time in church.”
Omah Lay went on to share that he considered converting to Islam at one point, but he has reached a phase in his life where his connection with God is a personal one, separate from organized religion.
He emphasized his uncertainty about religious texts, stating, “I really do not know anything, and that is the problem, it is just these books, and everyone is saying this and that, but in no way does it sound true.”
The singer added, “The only evidence that I have is that he is moving me, I know there is something somewhere that is in charge of this whole thing.”
