Omar left the church after four years as Pastor to follow his passion of becoming a musician. He began his music career by performing in nightclubs and, with the assistance of a jockey buddy, quickly appeared on compilation albums for popular DJs. He was also a backup singer for Hector and Tito.
Hector and Tito were instrumental in Omar’s debut studio album’s release. His first solo album, ‘The Last Don,’ marked the start of his solo career. Famous performers such as ‘Daddy Yankee’ have also contributed to the CD. The record was a commercial success and garnered widespread appeal in South America. The album was soon certified Platinum.
Omar launched his second studio album, ‘King of Kings,’ after three years of research and hard work. The album broke several records and became more popular than his previous releases. Every day, Omar’s fan base grew larger and larger. The record also marked the start of his involvement with the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise.
