Omah Lay: Live your life, people will move on when you die

Nigerian singer Stanley Omah Didia, popularly known as Omah Lay, has reminded people to live their lives on their terms because people would move on when they die.

The singer made this assertion during his interview on the Afrobeats Podcast.

There, he expressed his sadness that things are slowly slipping back to business as usual since Mohbad died. He then used that avenue to remind people to live their lives.

Lay also noted that he had just heard about the Mohbad’s passing and the sad news broke him down, especially because he saw him as family.

The artiste said, “I’m gonna use this chance to say this you have to live your life. If you’re watching this right now you have to know that you have to live your life. Look Mohbad just passed and it broke me down so much, everybody is moving on. I’m so sad cuz I just heard the news, he was my boy like my family. So rest in peace man.”

Lay continued, advising people to prioritize their happiness, he said that people eventually move on after mourning. These days people are on social media for a minute then move on with their lives.

In his words, “And at the same time, you go on Instagram and see everybody vibing and everybody is in the club. You have to live your life you have to live your life you have to do, so what pleases you you have to be in your 24/7. Don’t let anybody kill that for you cuz as soon as you’re done all anybody can do is write RIP on their stories or their feed and that’s done.”

Mohbad, real name Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, a talented hip-hop act, passed away barely a week ago. The cause of his death remains unknown as different accounts of circumstances surrounding the demise exist. One account was that he complained of an ear problem, which led to him being taken to the hospital.

He was alleged to have died in Ikorodu, Lagos, after being administered an injection by an auxiliary nurse.

The claim hasn’t been confirmed by anyone as neither his family nor friends have stated how he died.

It was also said that Mohbad died of injuries sustained in a fight with a childhood friend, Primeboy. However, Primeboy, who was among the last persons who saw the deceased came out to deny the allegation.
