Meet The Beautiful Family of Omar Borkan Who Was Allegedly Expelled From Saudi Arabia Years Ago.

In 2013, the viral wold was stumped when a picture of Omar Borkan Al Gala surfaced stating that he was expelled from Saudi Arabia supposedly for being 'too handsome.'

Omar was among the three UEA men expelled for being too handsome, although the identity of the two others remain anonymous.

Omar was believed to have been deported by the authorities as they felt his good looks might corrupt impressionable women at n annual festival.

But the truth of the matter is this, the model, actor, and photographer became internationally notorious in August 2013. The incident occurred during the 'Jandriyan Cultural Festival' in Riyadh, in which he, plus two other male models, worked on a promotion stand.

In January 2015 interview, Omar said that at the festival, some girls recognized him from some modelling he had done and they gathered for autographs and photos, after which the crowd then began to grow.

He stated that, "the religion police didn't like it, and they came and they asked me politely to leave the festival."

According to a police officer, "the members of the Commission for the Promotion of virtue and Prevention of Vices feared that female visitors would fall in love with them."

Later, the delegation of Saudi Arabia issued a statement clarifying that Borkan and the other two models were never asked to leave the country, only the festival, and that had nothing to do with being 'too handsome', but was related to the unexpected presence on the stand of men, something that challenged the country's custom regarding having women not to interact with men who are not of their family. They also stated that Omar Borkan had performed 'indecent' dances at the event.

The incident became one of the most viral stories on the internet after the photographs of Omar were disseminated through social media, and he was invited to give interviews on various television programs and appeared on various magazine covers, being presented by the international press as 'the most handsome Arab man in the world' or 'the most handsome man in the world.'

His social media handle followers grew into millions over night following news of his alleged deportation.

As a result, Omar made a tour that took him to Mexico, Chile and Ecuador in Latin America- before finally relocating to settle in Vancouver in the same year of the alleged deportation. According to some sources, he moved with his parents and two brothers.

Of course the Samsung product ambassador looks cute and he knows and loves the attention he gets, especially from the girls. This he had this to say in an interview about hes new found international fame, "The attention is one of the things that every man in this world wants. Especially from the girls, right? So every man wants to be in that place whee he gets all the people's attention and everyone's looking after him. It happens to me and it feels great."

Born in Baghdad, Iraq, Omar was raised in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. The model and photographer who studied Hotel Management in school now has a beautiful family that looks or befits his kind of looks.

Married to Yasmine Oweidah (who is a fashion designer) in 2015, the beautiful couple now have and amazingly handsome boy, Diyab.

Although there are some critics who argue his wife is not as beautiful as she was supposed to be?

Since then, Omar has taken it upon himself to post pictures of his pretty wife and cute son on all his social media handles as can be seen below.


believe everyone wants a beautiful family just like his. And we all love to flaunt our families as well, irrespective of the looks. I wish he continues to enjoy a happy married life.

But if you would ask my honest opinion, I don't find him attractive at all, and I won't go on a date with him if I was a lady.There are numerous number of Nigerian men who can beat him to cuteness I believe (e.g he doesn't come anywhere close to Ramsey Nouah, Jim Iyke, 2 Baba, Obinna Uchendu BBN's Ozo etc.) I bet you agree with me on this?

Also, do you agree with the the critics who feel his wife is not as beautiful as expected? Let your opinions known in the comment section below.
