Famous singer Stanley Omah Didia, aka Omah Lay, has revealed that he contemplated converting to Islam at some point despite being born into a Christian home.

He said right now, 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.”
