Omah Lay, the fast-rising Nigerian singer, has come through with a new track titled ‘Free My mind.’


The Port Harcourt-born hitmaker announced the release of the song on his verified Twitter page in the early hours of Friday.

The announcement came with a garish artwork that foretells the boppy sound that is being released.

In the track, the Grammy-nominated Afro-fusion crooner sings while freeing his mind with “shayo” to numb against the harsh reality of life.


The less than three-minute feel-good track started with Omah Lay paying homage to Wizkid’s open lines in ‘Baba Nla’, the Grammy-winner 2018 hit single.

“I get a girl for America/ She no dey ever ever let me down/ I get another one for Senegal/ She no dey ever ever give me nack/ I get another one for Unilag/ That one behaves like a hoodlum/ I get another one for Uniport/See me see trouble kill a boy/ Now we don bust o,” he sings in the first verse.

Before moving to the infectious chorus: “Free my mind/ Free my mind with Shayo/ Free my mind/Free my mind with Shayo/ Free my mind.”


Omah Lay started his music career at the age of 15 and then rose to prominence after the release of ‘You’ and ‘Bad Influence’, his two hit singles.

He has continued to pull the strings in the Nigerian music industry with several beautiful offerings.
