In a series of tweets on Monday, July 18th, the “Understand” Took to Twitter to explain the series of events that took place before his album release.

“I wanna spill my heart on this app like this, ‘Boy Alone’ might be the last time y’all will hear me cry on a song, On G, I was dead a*s down, insecure, scared, depressed, and losing my mind like. I was literally gonna kill myself,” he wrote.

“People I used to look up to stopped showing me love, I looked people in the eye and saw doubt, disrespect and hate. I lost myself, maybe I was just overthinking, I don’t know.”

He also disclosed that his girlfriend broke up with him within that period. “My babe served me breakfast at midnight. I wanted to go crazy,”

Omah Lay said after listening to the album, he regained his confidence and realised that he is one of “Africa’s best artistes.”

“I felt like I lost it until after I finished recording Boy Alone. I listened to myself and realized I’m one of the hardest sh*t African music has ever seen,” he wrote.

“Boy Alone” is Omah Lay’s debut album. The project came about two years after the success of “What Have We Done”, and “Get Layed”, his two extended plays (EP).
