Omari’s hero is the now late US cham­pion boxer Muham­mad Ali. “Even when he had Parkin­son’s dis­ease, he was still out there sign­ing au­to­graphs, talk­ing and meet­ing with his fans.

“You need to be kind and op­ti­mistic. When I go through chal­lenges, I think what doesn’t kill you makes you a war­rior. My an­ces­tors went through far more than I did.

“When­ever I put them on a scale, I re­alise that my is­sues are noth­ing in com­par­i­son.”

Omari has many projects in store for 2017, in­clud­ing a TV show that he is cur­rently pitch­ing, as well as sev­eral films.

The first part of Em­pire sea­son three ends on Wed­nes­day at 9pm and it will be back again in March next year.
