Why I Considered Conversion To Islam — Omah Lay [Video]

Omah Lay

Nigerian singer Stanley Omah Didia, widely recognised as Omah Lay, has revealed that he once contemplated converting to Islam, despite being born into a Christian family.

However, he currently finds himself disinterested in organised religion and instead places his faith in the existence of God.

Omah Lay discussed his spiritual journey in a recent interview with media personality Wunmi Bello.

He expressed that he has shifted away from religious affiliations, stating, “As soon as I made money, I just switched; I just believed in God and became more human than religious. I don't just enjoy religion anymore.”

Having grown up in a Christian household and spent a significant amount of time in church, he contemplated converting to Islam at one point.

“I grew up in a Christian home. I spent a lot of time in church. And at some point, I was going to convert to Islam.”

Nevertheless, he said that he has now reached a point where his faith is directed toward God rather than being bound by the confines of any specific religious tradition.

“But now I’m at the point where it’s just me and God. Not religion. Because I really don’t know anything about religion. That’s the problem. These holy books and what everybody is saying,” Omah Lay explained.

“I know it sounds true but these are just books that I can not find evidence that this was written by God or his servants.

“So, I just feel like I don’t know anything in as much as I know the bible, Jesus and Allah. But at the end, I don’t have evidence.

“The only evidence I have is that there’s a God who is moving me. I know that there must be something that’s somewhere that’s in charge of this whole thing. I believe it’s God.”
