Within two years of his break-out EP ‘Get Layd’ (2020), rapidly rising star Omah Lay was already considered one of the most important and innovative artists of the expansive Nigerian music scene. The 25-year-old singer and producer’s brand of afro-fusion pulls from West Africa’s highlife genre as well as rap, R&B, and the afrobeat of his hometown Lagos. The result is as danceable as it is captivatingly emotional. Lay’s honest vocals and haunting storytelling ascended to even greater heights on his celebrated debut album ‘Boy Alone’ (2022). This summer, one of Nigeria’s most hypnotic artists is coming to Way Out West!
Omah Lay will play in Slottsskogen on Friday Aug 11.
