No debut project in 2020 has moved the way Omah Lay’s ‘Get Layd’ did. The Port Harcourt native’s sensual voice and delightful melodies on the tape served as comfort music during quarantine. He also showcased the allure of introspective songwriting in Afropop with the impressive following he amassed while clubs and music stages were not an option. Earlier this month, he flaunted his international range by sharing the 6lack-assisted remix for “Damn”, which he has now revealed was giving us a taste of another EP, titled ‘What Have We Done’.

The tape offers four new tracks, “My Babe”, “Can’t Relate”, “Godly” and “Confession”, produced by Echotheguru, Tuzi, Tempoe, and Omah Lay respectively, while “Damn Remix”, produced by Bizzouch serves as the bonus 5th track. ‘What Have We Done’ is the product of an artist who became an overnight sensation and is dealing with the uncertainty and anxiety that comes with it.
Omah Lay is doubling down on his introspective songwriting as he ponders on his new-found fame and seems to conclude that feelings, faith, partying and romance are the remedy for anxiety in the face of isolation and new beginnings.
