Omar is on his way to Kiev – via the rooftops of Ljubljana

Following on from his victory at EMA 2017, Omar Naber has had quite a busy time of it – there’s been a media frenzy, he’s been part of no less than three international Eurovision events and he’s performed at the Slovenian Song Festival.
“The journey up until now has been a fantastic experience, if a little exhausting,” says Omar, reflecting on the time that has passed since his triumph at the end of February. “I’ve enjoyed every moment of it and am really looking forward to the new challenges that lie ahead.”

Now, with only five days left before he leaves for Kiev, he has just held an exclusive rooftop audience in Ljubljana with special guests from the media as well as those from the music industry who have been part of his career in music in recent years.

“I am delighted that there are so many of us gathered together here today for this event. Everyone’s support means a lot to me and the interviews I’ve given today and all the well wishes I’ve received are such a nice farewell to leave for Kiev with.” 
Omar travels to Kiev on Sunday and the day after, his first rehearsal on the immense Eurovision stage awaits him.

As he makes his final preparations for his departure, Omar is keen to promote a positive image of Slovenia via his song.

“I am proud to say that I live in Slovenia as it is a beautiful and diverse country.
We may be a small country, but everything here is pristine and looked after.”
