Omah Lay says he attended the university for about six months before he dropped out to focus on music.

The ‘Attention’ crooner spoke in a recent interview, giving reasons for abandoning tertiary education at an early stage to concentrate on his music career.

The 25-year-old musician disclosed he had to choose between creating time to make music and going to school, which he needed money to fund. Omah lay explained;

“I was in the university for like half a year, and I stopped. I just dropped out. Yeah, it was a hard choice to make because at that time I was just learning music production and I needed financing for school. I needed time for music production.”

“Somehow, I just loved music production so much I could let go of school for music production. I felt like maybe sometime I will come back but when I got really deep into music production, I didn’t go back to school, and I didn’t even have the time.”

“At some point, it felt like a wrong choice, but then, things started clicking, I started making beats that I love, that people wow. I started writing songs for people and people didn’t believe that that was me, and I just kept doing it until I found myself in Germany right now. I’m here right now, I’m doing this interview right now.”
