Omar Esa was previously an RnB/Pop singer in 2011 and was guided by Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) to leave that world and start recording nasheeds. His new journey began with a simple dream, to show the world the beauty of Islam through his nasheeds. Omar Esa is a strong advocate for voice only nasheeds and has coined the phrase “Anything music can do, so can the voice – My voice is my instrument”
Within nasheeds he has created his own genre called 'Islam and blues' (InB) because he says he came from Rhythm and blues (RnB), so now he's replaced the Rhythm with Islam. His debut album called 'Omar Esa' was released in November 2012. His latest album ‘My Muslim Family’ which released in June 2017 charted no.1 on the iTunes world album charts Alhamdullilah, with a further 2 nasheeds singles ‘Tera Pyaar - Your Love’ (2018) and his latest nasheed/song ‘Nikah’ (2019) both hitting the number 1 spot on the iTunes world chart Alhamdullilah.
