Ugandan prison gave me relationship with Tems — Omah Lay reveals

Ugandan prison gave me relationship with Tems —  Omah Lay

Nigerian singer Stanley Omah Didia, popular as Omah Lay, has recounted his ordeal in a Ugandan prison and how it started a relationship with Tems.

AllNews Nigeria recalls that Omah Lay was arrested and detained in a Ugandan prison alongside singer Tems after performing at a concert held at Speke Resort, Kampala, flouting the COVID-19 social distancing rules.

The "Soso" crooner who described the ordeal as "amazing" revealed that he built a relationship with Tems and her manager during tribulation.

According to him, he was put in the same cell with Tems' manager, Muyiwa Awoniyi.

Omah Lay, however, revealed that the experience almost led to losing his hair but for the prison warder who was a fan of his music.

He added that he would not want anyone to go through the "horrible experience".

Speaking in a recent interview with The Beat FM, London, United Kingdom, Omah Lay said: “My ordeal in Ugandan prison was an amazing time for me. Although it was rough at the moment now looking back at the whole thing, it had to happen. It gave me the relationship I have with Tems and her manager, Muyiwa [Awoniyi] today. He [Muyiwa] was in the same cell with me.

“We were in Uganda for a show during the pandemic. We had paperwork to perform but for some reason, we got arrested after performing. And we are sent to jail. We were in jail for two days.

“It was just a very horrible experience. I wouldn’t want anybody to go through that. They were going to cut my hair, I wore a prison uniform. They were so close to cutting my hair but the person who was in charge of the prison was a fan of my music. He got us a nice spot in jail and took care of us.”
