Nigerian singer, songwriter, and record producer, Stanley Omah Didia popularly referred to by his stage name, Omah Lay just threw his fans into a frenzy.

Why? He posted a picture on his Instagram page showing that he had shaved off his signature dreadlocks.

Omah Lay had been rocking his signature dreadlocks for over 2 years and occasionally loved to plait them into two big cornrows.  

The 25-year-old posted a photo on his Instagram page rocking a short Afro with no caption at all.


In the said post, he also included a video of him on stage performing his collab song "Attention" with international award-winning Canadian artist Justin Bieber, as well as photos of the two of them having a super cute bro moment.

The two performed the single (that was released in March) for the first time over the weekend.


In one of his earlier posts after the performance, Omah Lay had posted a video of him and the "Holy" hit-maker hugging while on stage captioning it: " One of the most amazing human beings on earth." 


"Attention" is one of Omah Lay's singles in his upcoming debut album dubbed " Boy Alone" which is scheduled to be released later on in the year. 

His fans had mixed reactions in regards to his new hairdo. Some were totally for it and others were definitely not having it.

Which I totally get because once you are used to seeing someone with a certain look, a change can be a little hard to digest.

Below are some of the comments from his fans:
