Famous singer Stanley Omah Didia, popularly known as Omah Lay, has spoken about his religious life before becoming a superstar.
Despite being born in a Christian home, Omah Lay said he contemplated converting to Islam at some point.
Omah Lay said that he used to believe in religion but right now, it’s just him and God, stressing that he knows nothing about religion anymore.
While saying that he believes in the existence of God, the singer added that he is not certain if the holy books used by some of these religions are real.
Omah Lay made this statement in a recent interview with media personality Wunmi Bello.
He said: “As soon as I made money, I just switched; I just believed in God and became more human than religious. I don’t just 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. Not religion. Because I really don’t know anything about religion. That’s the problem. These holy books and what everybody is saying, I know it sounds true but these are just books that I can not find evidence that this was written by God or his servants.
“So, I just feel like I don’t know anything in as much as I know the Bible, Jesus and Allah. But at the end, I don’t have evidence. The only evidence I have is that there’s a God who is moving me. I know that there must be something that’s somewhere that’s in charge of this whole thing. I believe it’s God.”
