New York City’s New Years Rockin’ Eve tapped Omarion to deliver a COVID-19 PSA. “I know there has been a lot of confusion online recently, so my lawyers asked me to read this: I, Omarion, am a musician and entertainer — you knew that — not a variant, okay.”
He then joked, “The last time I had to do this was in 2000 when everyone confused Y2K with B2K.” He then concluded: “That ain’t how it’s supposed to be, but seriously, I want to wish you all a happy and safe new year’s. Peace.”
Just in case you didn’t get the message. @NYRE 🙏🏾😁✨. Omarion not omicron
