Omah Lay became Instagram official with his ex-girlfriend, Gloria, in September 2021. The couple broke up shortly after, following rumors of her cheating.
Omah revealed in his tweets that his ex served him “breakfast” (a slang for heartbreak), and almost drove him crazy.
I wanna spill my heart on this app like this. Boy Alone might be the last time y’all will hear me cry on a song, On G, I was dead as* down, insecure, scared, depressed, and losing my mind like. I was literally gonna kill myself.
People I used to look up to stopped showing me love, I looked people in the eye and saw doubt, disrespect and hate. I lost myself, maybe I was just overthinking, I don’t know.
My babe served me ‘breakfast’ at midnight. I wanted to go crazy
I felt like I lost it until after I finished recording Boy Alone. I listened to myself and realized I’m one of the hardest sh*ttt African music has ever seen!!.”
