In 2013, a man was deemed too handsome to have his way in Saudi Arabia, and because of that, he was sent out of the kingdom alongside two other men. The man is Omar Borkan Al Gala. He is a poet, an actor, model, photographer, and thanks to him being too sexy for Saudi Arabia, he has also become a social media sensation.
Omar Borkan Al Gala – Early Life Brother, Family
It was in Baghdad, Iraq that Omar Borkan Al Gala was born on September 23, 1989. He was raised in Dubai after his family moved there when he was still a child. He was brought up alongside his younger brother, Ain Borkan Al Gala.
The Iraqi-born sensation who became famous as a result of his looks got his education from the Abu Obaida Ahjarah Public School in Dubai. From here, he proceeded to Vancouver in an attempt to get on with his acting and modeling.
Professionally, he has recorded a lot of successes including appearing in a short movie alongside popular American-Iranian actor, Navid Negahban. It was when he was 18 that he decided to fully pursue a career as a model. Through the years, he has graced the cover of many magazines and has become a sort of fashion authority in Asia.
What made him more famous than the things he is into is the report that he was evicted from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a result of his looks. Nevertheless, it was later clarified that he was actually evicted from a religious cultural festival where it was said he could be a distraction to women at the event. This was after some women saw him and asked for an autograph and soon, the number of female admirers grew too much. There are some reports insisting the whole incidence was false as he only did it to gain fame.
If indeed he did it for the purpose of fame, it has worked for him rather well as it has helped him to get a lot of offerings in different things including photo shootings, acting, modeling, and a lot more. He has massive followership on social media with a Facebook page that has over 2 million likes and over a million followers on Instagram.
No, the man is no longer free for the taking as he is already married to a woman he described as his own queen. His wife is Yasmin Oweidah with whom he tied the knot in October 2015. Just like her husband, Yasmin is a very beautiful woman who is into fashion design having attended the ESMOD French fashion University in Dubai.
Omar and Yasmin Oweidah who is from Jordan are said to have dated for a long time before they finally decided to make it official.
Yasmin Oweidah and Omar gave birth to their first child, a boy, Diyab Borkan in 2016 who is as cute as his parents. The family now lives in Canada and they are very popular on social media where they don’t fail to show express their love for each other.
Since his alleged eviction from the festival from Saudi Arabia because of his looks broke, it has brought to Omar Borkan Al Gala, not just fame but wealth. It has helped him to start up as a model, just as it has helped him to forge a way in his acting career.
While there are some sources that claim he has a net worth that amounts to $10 million, this is hardly verifiable. Nevertheless, he has a lot of properties including a Mercedes G55 which he claimed was gifted to him on his birthday by a woman he didn’t know. He revealed that the car was just brought to him and he was asked to sign and have it. The car was estimated to cost nearly £70,000.
Also, he has an endorsement deal with Samsung. Although the exact value of the deal is not known, he has been involved in promoting the company’s Galaxy S series as well as the Galaxy Camera 2.
With his very enticing looks, Omar Borkan Al Gala also has a good bodybuild that makes it easy for him to succeed as a model. He has a height of 6 feet 4 inches (1.93m) and a weight of 78 kg.
