Early Life

The Didia family has a history of being music enthusiasts. Omah Lay‘s paternal grandfather was a drummer for Highlife major act – Celestine Ukwu. So it didn’t come as a surprise to Stanley‘s parents, when their son decided to tow the path of music.

He was born on the 19th of May 1997 in Port Harcourt. Raised in Marine Base, he is not a stranger to the rugged life of PH city. He picked up the creative hat when he became a teenager. Aspiring to become the next big rapper, he gave himself the moniker, Lil King and would thrill his neighbors to freestyle rap songs.

Becoming disinterested with rap music, he decided to switch to music production and started understudying some of his friends who were producers. Within a few months, he had learnt the skill and became a pro in the game. He started to collaborate with upcoming artistes in Port Harcourt to create good music.

However his heart was drawn back to the singer lifestyle and he decided to give it a shot once more. Believing that he had the creative bug in him, he sat down to write the songs, Do Not Disturb and Hello Brother, which he recorded and released to the public. This was in 2019. By this time he had rebranded and settled on the stage name – Omah Lay.

The songs were quite successful and caught the attention of some record labels, who became interested in his work. He finally settled on Lagos based label, KeyQaad Records; thus he had to move out of the city to pursue his dreams.

Due to his unique singing style and lyricism, top music artistes have featured him on their songs. He collaborated with Olamide on the hit single, Infinity in 2020. Having caught the eye of Ghanaian female diva, Gyakie, he was the guest artiste on the remix of her popular song, Forever. The song was released in March 2021.
