This comes after the Port-Harcout-born, artiste Omah Lay revealed how he grew up among “criminals”.
In his words:
“I grew up among criminals. It’s crazy. I grew up in Marine Base. And if you know that place very much you will know that it’s like one place in Port
Port Harcourt where people didn’t used to go at the time I was growing up.
“I grew up around criminals, thugs and stuff like that. I grew up around pipeline [vandals], illegal business and stuff like that. So, there were a lot of troubles for me but what I said is part of the things that made me what I’m today.”
