Omah Lay drops new track ahead of Kenyan performance

Fans are eagerly awaiting Omah Lay’s performance next month.

Rising Nigerian pop star Omah Lay just dropped ‘Understand’, his first solo release of 2021. The song ‘Understand’ is a deep reflection about romance, where Omah Lay wonders why his beloved seems less invested in their relationship than him.

“It was a tough one to record and I hope the fans listen, understand and connect with it,” Omah Lay explains about the song.

Mr. Lay most recently featured on the Masterkraft remix of Justin Bieber’s chart-topping “Peaches,” with Alpha P, a fellow Nigerian upstart. Bieber, who is a fan of Omah Lay’s, personally reached out to invite him onto the remix. The ‘Godly’ singer is billed to headline the Pizza & Wine Festival in Nairobi next month.

Watch the ‘Understand’ lyric video:

With his darkly sparkling vocals, evocative storytelling, and contagious rhythms, Omah Lay is quickly becoming one of Africa’s most talked-about musical innovators. The 23-year-old singer and producer’s brand of Afro-fusion effortlessly pulls from his deep personal history with West Africa’s percussion-heavy highlife genre, as well as his enthusiasm for the popular sounds of his generation—from classic rap to the Afro-beats empire flourishing in his home base of Lagos.
