Popular singer Omah Lay had given the reason for his dropping out of University as failure to cope with the demands of the tertiary institution at that time. He made known that he was left with no choice but to choose between music and education.
He further stated that he dropped out of the university six months after gaining admission. In an interview on ‘The 77 percent’ on Deutsche Welle (DW) said he was faced with the choice of remaining in school while struggling with the fees or going after mastering music production, which he was just learning at the time.

Omah Lay noted it wasn’t an easy choice to make but he chose to follow his passion which was music production and faced the consequence which he knew at that time may be gracious but he was left with no choice.
“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 wowed people”, he said.
