Netizens Bash Omah Lay’s Performance On Tiny Desk [Video]

Omah Lay

Nigerian sensation Omah Lay recently took to the stage at NPR’s Tiny Desk to perform three of his songs — ‘Bad Influence’, ‘I'm a Mess’ and ‘Soso’.

Unfortunately, his vocal performance, especially on ‘Soso’ left many netizens scratching their heads, as they struggled to reconcile his hoarse singing with the impeccable song they all know and love.

Despite being backed by a band, the singer failed to sync with them, resulting in poor overall performance.

It is worth noting that NPR’s Tiny Desk has hosted global superstars such as Harry Styles, Usher, T-Pain, Alicia Keys, and many others.

The backlash against Omah Lay’s poor vocals during his Tiny Desk performance quickly spread across social media.

This incident has reignited the conversation about the recurring issue of live performances in the Nigerian music industry, where even the biggest artists have continued to deliver subpar shows.

Omah Lay is not the first Nigerian artist to struggle at NPR Tiny Desk, as readers may recall the poor showing of Naira Marley and Zinoleesky when they performed ‘O’dun’ off Naira Marley’s ‘God’s Timing Is The Best’ debut album.
