"Namaste India, I just want to say thanks for the invite to share your culture. I am really looking forward to visit a country known for its diversity. I definitely want to try some local food, meet some local musicians and sightsee at some iconic places. Looking forward to seeing you all really soon," Omi said in a statement to IANS.
The Jamaican singer's single "Cheerleader" was officially hailed as "Song Of The Summer" by Billboard after a six-week reign at the number one spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
"Omi has a huge fan following in India and after a lot of fan requests, we decided to bring him to the subcontinent for the very first time. In addition, this year we plan to host a bouquet of commercial acts who haven't performed in the country before," said Arjun Jain, Founder, White Fox India.
