Popular Nigerian singer, Stanley Omah Didia, professionally known as Omah Lay, has revealed that he grew up among “criminals”.
The “Soso” crooner disclosed this in a recent interview with H Steph, where he opened up about his childhood struggles and how they shaped his music career.
According to the Omah Lay, he grew up in Marine Base, which was a rough neighborhood in the city when he was growing up.
Omah Lay said; “I grew up among criminals at the Marine Base. And if you know that place well, you’ll know that it was not a place where people used to go out when I was growing up. I grew up around criminals and thugs, and illegal pipeline businesses and stuff like that. It was a lot of trouble for me. I mean, it is part of the thing that has made me what I am today,” he said.
“Port Harcourt is just like me. I am Port Harcourt from the way I talk and act. It’s a rough and beautiful city. Everything is raw in Port Harcourt. You can tell that I am raw. The talents are raw. It’s real life in Port Harcourt. I am just like a 100 percent representation of Port Harcourt,” he added.
