About 40 Acres
40 Acres is the people's dream.
40 Acres in Winnipeg, Canada, is a unique and complementary partnership of 40 Acres Production. We are one of the few licensed retailers of URBAN apparels & services in Canada.
The single-minded focus of 40 Acres has allowed the company to pioneer a range of products and services that have changed the entertainment and fashion landscape of this current era. We have created a new model for on-line and in-store fashion, melding people and technology to provide an integrated "high tech" and "high touch" fashion-forward line for modern men and women who desire designs that compliment their features and represent their very grace and beauty.
40 Acres has a string of proven record of innovating and pioneering new ideas into neo-digital community and fashion circles, and has quickly become the yardstick against which other businesses/organizations/people are measured.
The key to 40 Acres' success lies with the education, talent, experience and passion of an incredibly dedicated team; Lans Omar (Winnipeg, Canada), Vivian Omar (Winnipeg, Canada), Abdul Suhood Komeh (London, UK) and Abdul Hassan Fackie (Freetown, Sierra Leone).
Lans Omar: Nicknamed "The Golden Child," Lans Omar was born and raised in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He moved to Canada in 1999. Omar has been in show business and fashion for over quarter of a century across three continents. His resume still highlighs him as the producer of the controvercial "Miss Sierra Leone beauty pageant (The Gambia) 1998".
By profession, Omar is an accountant, a graduate from CDI Business College in Winnipeg, Canada. He's the co-owner of 40 Acres Canada - a 21st century digital media & fashion business based in Winnipeg, Canada. Renowned BBC broadcaster, Hylton Fyle, once described Omar on national TV as: "people have consider his thinking as very futuristic and at least ten years ahead of our time and he's a lot of things to many people".
As a reporter for Concord Times, Omar has interviewed many celebrities including Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men, Nigerian actress Liz Benson, Grammy winner Miriam Makeba, Salif Keita, Kora Awards winner Shaka Bundu, Neneh Cherry, David Vandy, M.B Attilla, Kanda Bongoman, Kao Denero, Heyden Adama and Baba Maal, etc.
He's married to Vivian Omar (Pretty Woman) with two beautiful kids: Lans Jr. (Mr. Pliers) and Maryam (Titi Pancake). At home in his quite time, Omar researches the major religions of the world and he's very concerned about the welfare of the dead, resurrection and, of course, judgement day.
The legend continues.
Vivian Omar: Vivian is not just "the girl next door." She has a RN from Red River College and a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada.
She a is living testament of the old English proverb that: "behind every successful man, there is a strong woman."
Vivian is a quiet girl that was born to an Aboriginal mom and an English dad in Winnipeg, Canada, and has spent most of her life in the province.
She's currently employed with a non-governmental health organization as the "Tribal Diabetes Coordinator" for four northern communities in Canada.
Vivian is married to Lans Omar with two beautiful kids; Lans Omar, Jr. and Maryam Omar.
Abdul Suhood Komeh: Abdul Suhood Komeh is a Sierra Leonean writer based in London, England. Better known as Suhood, he is a former member of the popular Sierra Leone teenage dance crew - The American Tourists (mid 1980 to early 1990).
