Singer Omarion Clarifies He's Not the Omicron COVID-19 Variant in Viral Video

“If you just so happen to run into me on the street, you don’t have to isolate for five days.”

Ringing in the new year, musician Omarion responded to jokes about his name being similar to the omicron COVID-19 variant in a series of light-hearted videos.

“Hi everybody, this is Omarion. I am an artist, not a variant. So please be aware that if you just so happen to run into me on the street, you don’t have to isolate for five days, nor do you have to have a negative test result in order to dance to my music,” the 37-year-old joked in a TikTok clip. In another video, he continued: “While it’s important not to touch me and keep your distance, cause you know that’s how it’s supposed to be, you don’t need a negative test to dance to my music.”

Responding to the viral clips, the artist followed up with another post, where he says: “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 concluded his message by wishing his fans a happy new year.
