Album Review: Afro-depression? Omah Lay Harnessed His Sound In ‘Boy Alone (Deluxe Edition)’



Singer Omah Lay released the deluxe version of Boy Alone and this is our review of the so called Afro-depression album, an album that talks about demons, temptation, love and pains.

While a lot of afrobeat artistes want to sing about lewd lyrics, Omah Lay has harnessed his own sound and he has been given the term Afro depression. The singer sings about philosophy, psychology and pains.

With six songs added to this deluxe version, Omah Lay maintained the theme of the album. The first track Reason is an intimate for the artist; an x-ray of the demons and temptations he so frequently slakes with drink and weed.

What is the reason you do not have your
own peace of mind? Are you having fun or are you doing this
thing to survive? Are you taking the pictures of every
memories of your life? What’s the reason why we’re still out here?”

This is where the singer is asking several salient question. Questions so deep he could’t even answer himself. What more do you expect of afro-depression?

The follow-up to Omah Lay’s breakthrough album, Come Closer, features a wide range of vivid sounds and a distinctive voice texture that goes deep throughout the record. As this is a track about love, Omah Lay maintained the a broken voice that cries out for love.

The track Imagine is where Omah Lay was an integral element of our deliverance. The track reeks of recordings centered on soothing music, perfectly complementing his smooth, introspective singing. Songs that gave us faith, shook us up, and got us to try having fun and being fans again.
