After 3 Years, Where Is Lyta – Musically Dead or Still Alive?



Opeyemi Babatunde Rahim, known professionally as Lyta is a Nigerian singer and songwriter.

He signed a record deal with YBNL Nation in 2018 but left the label in May 2019 after having a disagreement with the label owner Olamide.


In 2019, Lyta left YBNL Nation due to contractual and personal issues. After exiting YBNL, he signed with Doro Musik Gang and released the Killer Tunes-produced track “Monalisa” on 12 July 2019. The visuals for “Monalisa”, which was directed by Director K, amassed over 500,000 views within a month after its release.


A few weeks after the release of “Monalisa”, Davido reached out to Lyta about recording an official remix with him. Following their agreement, Davido and Lyta flew to Dakar for the remix and video shoot.

The remix of “Monalisa” was released on 30 August 2019. Elias Light of Rolling Stone magazine described the song as a “handsome contradiction, with fierce expressions of yearning”. Lyta gained exposure following his collaboration with Davido on the remix.


Lyta released the Afrobeat track “Worry” on 6 December 2019; it was produced by Killer Tunes. The visuals for “Worry” was shot and directed by Simplicity Visual Studios in London.





Reports about Lyta’s exit from YBNL surfaced after Olamide unfollowed him on Instagram. In May 2019, Lyta confirmed his exit from YNBL Nation on Naijaloaded TV. He said although he was paid between 50,000 and 80,000 for shows, he never had a written contract with the label. Olamide issued a statement to Guardian Life, saying YBNL has a promotion calendar that Lyta refused to follow.

New Record Label




Lyta is currently signed under Marlian Records owned by Naira Marley. He also released his first single under the label titled “Hold me Down(Omo Gidi)”. The video to ”Hold Me Down” which was inspired by Kpop Korean boy band GOT7 and BTS was directed by TG Omori. The video is an exact replica of GOT7’s “Just Right” music video.


But since then, the young man is nowhere to be found in the music industry. So I ask,
