Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has created a stir online following his latest interview where he expressed his disinterest in religion.
The ‘Damn’ singer admitted that he used to be religious, till he gained fame and started making money and now has backslid.
Omah Lay narrated his growing up days in a Christian home and how at some point in his life, he contemplated converting to Islam.
Though he is no longer religious, he still believes in God but has chosen to place humanity over religion. According to him, he respects his Creator and acknowledges his presence but for now, he doesn’t enjoy religion anymore. To further buttress his point, he stated that there is no evidence that the holy books were written by God or his servants.
“I think as soon as I made money I just switched, I just believed in God and respected God and became more human than religion, I just don’t enjoy religion anymore. I grew up in a Christian home, I spent a lot of time in church, and at some point, I was going to convert to Islam but now I’m at the point where it’s just me and God, no religion.”
