Embracing the Pop style, while adding Raï and Afro melodies, Omar Najib is driven by a desire to make the work accessible to a wide audience and a desire to faithfully exteriorize his emotion to his listeners. Succeeding in launching his first song on YouTube, the young man claims to have left a message open to all interpretations, and this in a desired way. And to specify: “my first song is the fruit of my own experience and my interaction with my environment, but everyone will interpret it in their own way, some will say that this song is romantic and inspires their stories of love, others will associate it with completely different situations in their lives”.
Omar Najib began his musical experience as an autodidact in 2009, starting to play the guitar, his favorite instrument. After experiencing enthusiasm to play and sing it, Omar thinks about studying in a school to boost his skills and knowledge. In 2012, he enrolled at the International School of Music and Dance in Casablanca, and studied his favorite art there. Graduating in 2014, he started playing in cafes, and luckily for him, he succeeded in attracting spectators and the organizers invited him several times to play in their establishments.
Dreaming of a professional career, Omar consulted several studios in order to record his first songs. Having suffered a lot of rejection, he finally manages to get recordings, thanks in particular to the music producer Imad Ait Bouhouch, at Signature Production. Omar Najib is full of praise for the latter and the production company: “they opened the door to me, believed in me and gave me a chance”.
The young artist, often favoring the option of self-learning, endeavored to fulfill another objective, important to him, in order to gain autonomy and the ability to act, namely the mastery of all the computer aspects of his artistic production, including video editing and sound arrangement, as well as other technical skills necessary to carry out his career.
