In the viral clip online, a huge crowd surrounded the musician and simply stared instead of singing and jumping as expected.
Only a few individuals who appeared black and seemed to be familiar with Soso sang along every time Omah Lay approached them. The singer did his best to bring the performance alive, but the crowd seemed uninterested.
After performing hit single, Soso, Omah Lay, who had just released his deluxe album, Boy Alone, walked out of the stage with not so much excitement on his face.
