After getting his start producing other artists, Nigerian rapper Omah Lay has become a solo star in the Afrobeat/Afro-fusion genre. During the summer of 2020, Apple Music launched its Africa Rising initiative with Lay as the cover star after his debut EP, Get Layd hit No. 1 in Nigeria. “Infinity,” his Top 20 collaborative single with rapper Olamide, appeared on the latter’s 2020 LP, Carpe Diem. Lay was nominated for four awards at Nigeria’s 2020 Headies: Best R&B Single and Songwriter of the Year (for “Bad Influence”), Viewer’s Choice, and Next Rated.
