Omar is one of those people who life puts before you as an example. From him one can learn the values of sacrifice, effort, solidarity, respect, dignity, and also that of falling and getting back up again. Omar, with his charming personality and dreadlocks down to his feet (no exaggeration), unknowingly spreads positive energy, with the light and verve that go alongside his very unusual lifestyle.
He left Lamu looking for a better life, hoping to help his modest family with multiple children. Since then he has been known as Omar Colorado, because Colorado was his first stop in the US.
