Talented Afro-fusion artiste, Omah Lay returns with another banger, titled “Free My Mind”.
Omah Lay premiers this new single ‘Free My Mind‘ after the huge success of his last release titled Understand. The official music video for the single Understand has over 20 Million views on YouTube.
With Understand, Omah Lay depicts the heartbreaking dynamic of being in love with someone who is out to get you heartbroken. The themes of the song center around Heartbreak, Confusion, Love, Betrayal, Revenge, and Pain. Omah Lay finds himself in deep reflection about romance, wondering why his beloved seems less invested in their relationship than him.
The first verse of the song involves Omah Lay describing how much pain the mystery lady caused him. He vividly described how he sacrificed precious things for the lady, but she ended up ‘befriending his best friend’.
Omah Lay is fast becoming one of Nigeria’s most talked-about musical innovators. His brand of Afro-fusion pulls from his deep history with West Africa’s percussion-heavy highlife genre, as well as his enthusiasm for the popular sounds of his generation—from U.S. rap, to the Afrobeats empire flourishing in his home base of Lagos.
