There are reports on social media saying Omah Lay is considering removing Burna Boy from his next album.


The reports are also attributing the ‘Godly’ crooner’s move to the recent “shooting” controversies that have trailed the Grammy-winning Afropop star.

This has generated a wave of conversation across social media platforms with music lovers registering their opinions on the accuracy and veracity of the reports.

A perusal of the singers’ social media pages — at the time of this report — yielded nothing unequivocally confirming any form of aversion between the music stars.


Omah Lay’s album is billed to be released on June 24 — although he is yet to put out the tracklist.

But an Instastory screenshot being attributed to him had shown the singer saying Burna Boy was on it.

In the screenshot, a fan had asked: “Is Burna on da album?”. The ‘Bad Influence’ crooner responded in Pidgin English: “E dey but I go remove am.”

His response showed he would remove their joint track from the project prior to the album release.

It, however, remains to be seen if there is a dispute brewing between the Port Harcourt-born singers.

If there is any crack between the pair, it is also unknown if it is connected to the alleged shooting incident involving Burna Boy’s security team.


A few days ago, the police said it will interrogate Burna Boy after the singer’s security team was alleged to have shot at two fun-seekers who were subsequently hospitalised.


Moreso, Omah Lay had, on Monday, put out a tweet that suggested some undisclosed issues were delaying his album release.

“I just wanna share my music with my fans and these reasons make no sense to me. Just put the album out!” he wrote.

He, however, did not confirm or deny the lingering and widespread reports.

TheCable Lifestyle reached out to Omah Lay’s team to ascertain the true state of things.


“There was never a misunderstanding between the both of them man, Omah’s post on his stories was just for laughs,” read a short statement from the singer’s team.
