Omah Lay Announces ‘Boy Alone’ World Tour 2022

Nigerian star Omah Lay announced his US Boy Alone World Tour 2022. Produced by Live Nation and Duke Concept, the tour kicks off on September 7th at The Fillmore Silver Spring in Silver Spring, MD making stops across North America in Atlanta, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles and more with additional dates to be announced. The tour will follow the release of Omah Lay’s debut album Boy Alone via Warner Records on July 14.

The Afro-fusion artist broke into the scene in early 2020 after his self-produced single, “Bad Influence,” went viral on social media. He signed with Warner Records and kept busy throughout 2021 with a steady stream of releases and a sold-out US tour. His smash hit “Understand” was a contemplative, yet danceable record powered by his signature vocal warmth. Last summer, he was featured on Masterkraft’s remix of Bieber’s chart-topping “Peaches” and this year he tapped Bieber for his single “Attention” before releasing his newest anthem “Woman.” Recognizing all of his talent and hard work, the 2022 NAACP Image Awards nominated Omah Lay for “Outstanding International Song.”

With his darkly sparkling vocals, evocative storytelling, and contagious rhythms, Omah Lay is one of Nigeria’s most talked about innovators. The 25-year-old singer and producer’s brand of Afro-fusion effortlessly pulls from his deep personal history with West Africa’s percussion-heavy highlife genre, as well as his enthusiasm for the popular sounds of his generation—from classic rap to the Afro-beats empire flourishing in his home base of Lagos. Throughout his two inventive EPs, Get Layd and What Have We Done, his lithe voice unravels tales that range from introspective to romantic to gratifyingly explicit, expertly laid over lush and soulful instrumentals. Layered with vivid scenarios and heartfelt confessions, Omah Lay’s rich music not only depicts a young man daring to reveal his grittiest vices and innermost feelings, but also doubles as a fascinating window into Afro-fusion’s bright and expansive future.
