The American singer, songwriter, rapper, actor and dancer is best known as being the lead singer of the American R&B boy band B2K; the group achieved success with singles like "Bump, Bump, Bump", which reached number-one on the Billboard Hot 100.
Excited to perform in Nairobi, he said “Distance truly represents me arriving as an artist and as a creator, I’ve been more involved with everything from the concept to the editing. ‘Distance’ is the re-emergence of me as a director, fashion icon, performer, and entertainer who speaks multiple creative languages.”
“Lyrically, it’s about recreating a connection that I feel like is missing from the game. Songs used to bring people together. Nowadays we’re in the club and everyone is on their phones. Stay connected. Let’s dance.” He added.
As one of the youngest veterans in the industry, Omarion has enriched the music landscape as a chart topping, multi-platinum Grammy Award-nominated singer, producer and actor for over two decades.
“After all of this time, everything makes sense. I’ve matured as a man and evolved as an artist. This is the new level; the new wave; the new sound. This is the new Omarion.”
