Today, he works as Columbia Records’ Executive Vice President of A&R and strategic initiatives. His duties at the label encompass a wide range of genres, including pop and rap.

A sleuthy chap by the name of Omar Thiam was arrested and charged with one count of the criminal solicitation of a minor. ICAC task force members included the Richland County Sheriff’s Office and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. A well deserved high five to the man and his law enforcement colleagues for the job done. Omar is a tall man in a small tuxedo, but not the sexiest. The following day he was at the top of his game, err, not to mention a lot of the credit for the rest of the day.
