We recently caught up with OMI, singer of hit song #Cheerleader!
🎶"...I think that I found myself a cheerleader..." (sorry, we couldn't help ourselves!) 🎶
Omi's hit song Cheerleader went platinum in several countries around the world and before he knew it he was on stage singing with the one and only Taylor Swift!

1. You have been travelling the world singing and performing, what is your favourite memory to date?
Favourite memory to date... well I just did the Nickelodeon slime fest event in Australia a few weeks ago and it was an amazing experience being there with all the young people that love and adore us as musicians... and oh yea... getting slimed
2. If you had to pick the best moment in your career to date what would it be?
The best moment in my career so far was when cheerleader went platinum...and I got the plaque with all the different countries that it went platinum in.... and the most important part is that I got to share this moment with my team who all believed in me from the get go.
3. What was the first concert or live show that you ever attended?
My first concert was a reggae concert and it was an awesome experience to feel the energy and power the music holds.
4. What is your song writing process?
My song writing process varie depending on my inspiration, sometimes it starts off as just a melody, sometimes it starts off as a concept or even as a picture... Then I add words to compliment.
5. How do select the songs that make the album?
It is a joint effort between myself, the label and my management team. We all listen and
choose for different reasons so we cover all grounds.
6. What artists are you listening to at the moment?
I’m listening to Chris Brown, Drake, Rick Ross, Sia, Adele and my old favourite Bob Marley. I draw inspiration also from their energy in the music.
7. Any collaborations or duets in the works?
Most definitely, I am working on tracks with artist from many different genres such as Latin, French and even an African artist.
8. Is there something that you would like to add to your list of talents that you have never done before?
I think I could make a great home designer.... I currently do it with my ipad in my spare time but given the chance I think it could be a talent.
9. Whats next for OMI?
Im constantly working in the studio, making new music daily and working on the second album. I also have a lot of tours coming up and for sure looking forward to 2017 to keep pleasing the fans because without them... there is no OMI.
