 YOUTUBE STAR: OMI has over 70m views on just one song [MARVIN BARTLEY]—

Jamaican OMI, real name Omar Pasley, is enjoying a second week at No 1 with ear worm Cheerleader.

Si, 55, snapped up the singer because his song notched 70million views on YouTube, but hasn’t even met him.OMI, 28, told me: “I haven’t had chance to talk with Simon. He’s a busy guy. But I’ve heard how excited he is by my record and I’m looking forward to meeting him because you can’t put a price on getting free advice from Simon Cowell!

“He’s predicting big things for me this summer.”

Despite being signed to Syco, OMI says he’d have struggled to pass The X Fadelicately.

The Jamaican lad said: “I would. I’m a shy dude, but I understand audiences don’t pay to see someone shy so on stage I try to pull out all the stops like Michael Jackson.”But I wouldn’t mind being an X Factor judge – I really respect talent shows, it’s just you and whatever you can bring to the table.”

The youngest of four kids, OMI knows how hard it must be for Cowell looking after One Direction. He added: “With guys that young it needs treating delicately. You must lay down the rules and say to do things in moderation, explain the sacrifices if you want longevity.”

You must lay down the rules and say to do things in moderation, explain the sacrifices if you want longevity.”

OMI’s mum keeps his feet firmly on the ground.

He laughed: “My mom still tries to tie my shoelaces for me!”
