There are at least three artists with that name: 1) Omi (real name Omar Samuel Pasley) was born on September 3, 1986 in Clarendon, Jamaica. He is the last of four children of Kenroy and Rachel Pasley. As a child growing up, he sang at every occasion that provided an audience - the church, school concerts or any other community gathering. Much to the delight of his onlookers, Omi would rise to the occasion once he got the opportunity. Omi idolized his father and nurtured the desire to follow in his footstep as a visual artist and musician.
