“The stories in Africa are so rich and there are so many stories that need to be told. In America, we kind of live in a bubble, so many hospital shows, police shows and we got bored. When I come to Africa and I hear all these stories and I’m like ‘that should be a movie, or that should be a show.’ I’m inspired, as an artist because I am learning something new.” Morroco Omari said at Fairmont the Norfork.
So far the actor has toured the Nairobi National Park and visited hotels such as The Lord Erroll, and Fairmont The Norkfolk.
