I Once Considered Converting To Islam – Omah Lay

Famous singer Stanley Omah Didia, aka Omah Lay has opened up that he once thought of converting to Islam.

According to him, he contemplated converting to Islam at some point despite being born into a Christian home.

Omah Lay further stated that he doesn’t care about religion anymore.

He, however, said he believes in the existence of God.

Speaking in a recent interview with media personality Wunmi Bello, Omah Lay said, “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.

“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. 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, 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.”
