Omah Lay: 'This Time Last Year, I Didn't Know People Would Ever Hear My Songs' by ebukajay184: 2:28pm On Nov 20
Fast-rising singer, Omah Lay took to Twitter to reflect on his life and how much it has changed in just one year, IgbereTV reports.

The singer said by this time last year, he was in his tiny room singing songs he didn't know whether people would ever hear or like.

Today, he's a popular singer whose songs get Nigerians and people of other nationalities dancing.

He tweeted:

"This time last year I was holed up in my tiny room singing my guts out, not knowing if people would ever hear or even appreciate these songs."

"Fast forward few months later, those songs came together to become an EP titled ‘Get Layd’ and that shit changed my life!!!"

"I see myself everywhere, hear myself everywhere, feels great! Everything I ever wished for."

"But with it went the simple things of life, I miss being Stanley!!! Got me asking myself sometimes WHAT HAVE WE DONE ? ? ? !!! Don’t mind me, this shit is still new to me."

That's how it is
With lots of hope , thoughts , rehearsal , saying to yourself this song will be a hit , that one will . Everysong you listen to on radio or through your phone will not be as ineresting as yours , no musician sings more professional as you do , if it was me { @tosgramm } that handles this beat i will kill it more with my sonorous voice my melody my lyrics and lot more ..
Thats how every aspiring musician feels inside the tiny room before they eventually blows .
