Despite Mia spending a lot of time in the hospital, the famous song I’m a mess by Omah Lay is incorporated into the show’s opening sequence to capture her true emotions. Mia struggles inwardly with the knowledge that her isolation from the outside world is gone and it’s time to begin the process of exterior recovery. The opening sequence of I’m a mess skillfully depicts the difficulties that must be overcome on the road to rehabilitation, which is far from easy and has some roadblocks along the way. Everything Now is now ranked seventh among the top 10 TV series in Nigeria. Boy Alone, the acclaimed album by Omah Lay that debuted in 2022, contains the song “I’m a Mess.” The tension and worry that are constantly hidden under the surface are revealed in this album. Omah Lay expertly achieves this lyrical complexity in an afrobeat song, which is uncommon in this genre.
Omah Lay spoke with Adesope Olajide on the Afrobeat Podcast about how his quick ascent to prominence affected his mental health. His capacity to successfully manage his mental health has since improved, and he is ready to share his personal story with his fan base.
