Following backlash for unsatisfactory performance at the Afronation concert in Portugal, Nigerian artiste, Omah Lay, has offered a disgruntled fan VIP access to his ongoing tour.

 

A TikTok user, @akuvimusic, who claimed to have attended the concert on Saturday said certain artistes from West Africa, “especially Omah Lay and partly Rema”, were “not singing”

 

According to her, the audience could not hear Rema and Omah Lay’s voices during their performances.

 

“Why are you not singing? We came to see you live. You are a vocalist. Your main instrument is your voice,” she said in the video.

 

She added, “We came to Portugal to hear that voice live because we love what your voice sounds like on recording. Now we want to hear you live.”

 

Reacting to the video, Omah Lay tendered his apologies to disappointed fans and blamed the hitch on the show’s sound system.

 

He also offered the attendee VIP access to his ongoing Boy Alone World Tour to make up for the bad performance.

 

 “Apologies to you and all the fans that feel this way. I would’ve loved to give you better but I had to do this entire show without hearing myself cuz I wasn’t provided with sound on my IEM,” he tweeted on Sunday.

 

“I’ve been on the road almost every other night since March and it’s been fire. But challenges pop up and we choose to either do the best we can or not perform at all.

 

“Apologies once again. I’m still on tour and if you happen to be in any of the cities I’m coming to, I’d like to make it up to you with VIP access. Hmu! (Hit me up).”

 

His colleague, Rema had earlier reacted to the video, also citing bad sound set up at the concert.

 

“Whoever came for Afronation day 1 knew the sound was bad. Second delay was feedback from the mic. No in-ear monitors for artists to keep track of the audio the audience was receiving.

 

“Let’s not even talk about provisions they make for artists to come with ‘bands’. Still I made use of live sessions at first and I cut it off and improvised because I wasn’t satisfied with the sound. I even complained on stage.

 

“One thing leads to another, know this! But I just can’t watch people take shots at me and my brother, Omah Lay. Lastly, we’ll all learn, grow and do better as artists and organisers,” he tweeted on Sunday.
