Renowned Nigerian singer Stanley Omah Didia, also known as Omah Lay, shared his story of being imprisoned in Uganda.

Omah Lay and Tems were detained, accused, and sentenced to prison in Uganda on December 12, 2020, for violating COVID-19 social distancing regulations by attending a performance at Speke Resort in Kampala. They left jail the next day.

Omah Lay described the incident as a “wonderful time” in a recent interview with London’s The Beat FM, even though “it looked rough” at the time.

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.”

In addition to becoming well-known throughout Africa and the rest of the world, the ungodly hitmaker has disproved the notion that he is a lazy musician.
