In a reunion with Nigerian record producer Tempoe, who produced the 2021 smash hit single ‘Godly’, Omah Lay’s strengths as a songwriter and an amazing vocalist are in full bloom. “Give you my last card you spend am,” Omah Lay’s silky vocals carry so much emotion even when submerged beneath the soothing, hypnotic production, you can feel every bit of hurt and confusion in his voice. “It was a tough one to record and I hope the fans listen, understand and connect with it,” he explains, adding poignantly, “Most importantly, I hope she listens.”

Omah Lay was most recently featured on the Masterkraft remix of Justin Bieber’s chart-topping ‘Peaches’, with fellow Nigerian artist, Alpha P. Bieber, who is a big fan of Omah Lay, personally reached out to invite him onto the remix.

Listen to ‘Understand’.
