Interesting thread. I have many famous Somalis in my city. We had politicians like Ina Cumar Jees, Ali Mahdi, AbdiKasimi's(He is till around thou), the Buubaa's and Adam Ade's sons. Also there are/was entertainer's families such as Salaad Darbi's daughter, Xudeydi's sweet heart, Omar Shooli, Ina Dalmar(artist), Dalha(an artist and a parliamentarian who also used to academic professor).

 

Also Xasan Xundubey of BBC lived here and Abukar Boston(BBC and Xidigtii October). Sheikh Mohamed Idris's family too. The list is long because somehow Egypt was one of the first escape destinations during the civil war.

Maybe you guys can include which diaspora region/community you hail from, so we can make an actual directory. That includes you oba, I want to know where indhacaddes daughter's are lool.

 

So far it looks like we got

 

 

Virginia

Mohamed Ali Samantar (Former Somali PM/Warlord)

Abdi Bile's family is in Virginia. I think the man himself is a nomad.

 

 

Toronto

Xasaan Adan Samataar (musician)

 

 

Texas

Asli Hassan Abade (First Somali female Pilot)

 

Buffalo

Farmaajo (Former PM)

 

Minnesota

I'm sure there is large number out here

 

Ohio

Come on, I'm sure their are some celebs that roam Global mall

 

Egypt- Cawaale, perhaps you can help me clean this section up

Abdiqasim Salad Hassan (Politician)

Buubaa's and Adam Ade's sons.

Salaad Darbi's daughter

Xudeydi's sweet heart

Omar Shooli (Artist. Still alive?)

Ina Dalmar (Artist. still alive?)

Moamed Omar Dalha (Politician/Academic/Artist)

According to Malika and Blackfish its a combination of thugs and professionals. Maybe we can narrow this area down.

Dalaays is still alive? Isn't she like 100 by now? Not that I'd want her dead, just saying, just saying...
