The YBNL chief stated that he tried to recruit Omah Lay early in his career, but the singer informed him that he was already signed to another label.

Baddo, as he is affectionately known, revealed this in an interview with Adesope Olajide, nicknamed Shopsydoo, a British-Nigerian media personality.

Olamide said, “Somebody sent me Omah Lay’s song, ‘Bad Influence,’ I had to like search for him on Instagram. I messaged him that I want to sign him but he told me that he got a [recording] deal already.”

The rapper also revealed that he was depressed for about four years after running out of hit songs.

He, however, said he got his “swag back” after releasing hits like ‘Wo’ and ‘Motigbana.’

“Till date, songs like WO, MOTIGBANA, are like magic to me. I thought I could never get myself again. I was going crazy,” he said
