Omar Nasr’s Entry
As Coelho once noted, ships are safest at port and yet they spend their life traveling seas. Two years ago, I woke up and decided to choose adventure over stability, heart over mind, and risk over safety. I was teaching Math when I decided to quit and risk it all to pursue my dream of becoming a singer. I now have 6 released songs, with a total of 33 million TikTok views, 8 million YouTube Views, and 3 million Anghami streams. Three of my songs hit top Anghami charts in the MENA region and one song was trending on YouTube Music. My latest project is an album I am preparing called “Omar’s Originals”. I have finished two songs for my upcoming album since I happily won in Apollo last month. Four more songs to go!
Apollo gave me more than I expected and it is time I give back to its community. In case I win, I will be giving away a 10,000$ in Apollo to ten people who vote for me through a public raffle. That is a 1000$ prize to each winner! If I win this time, we all win. The remaining sum will be used to further fund my album “Omar’s Originals”, with a twist!! As you know, I was planning on doing only 6 lyric videos for the 6 songs. But in case I win this time, I will be filming a music video for one song in my album. Which song will it be? The Apollo community will decide! Yes! I will release the 6 lyrics videos and conduct a poll on Apollo’s Telegram where the community will choose the song they think would be best turned into a music video. I will also be able to broadcast the music video in three major TV channels in the MENA region, crediting Apollo all the way through as a Main supporter for my album. So in brief: a 10k giveaway to the community, a music video chosen by the community, and a marketing campaign to help expand the community.
