Ghanaian veteran artist, Rex Omar, has announced his intention to revive and refine Ghanaian Highlife music and whip up interest for the genre among the youth.
Rex Omar, who is on a tour with the agenda of promoting highlife, told Happy FM’s Doctar Cann on ‘Showbiz Extra’ that he was on a quest to save the ailing genre from extinction.
Recalling from the past, the ‘Abiba’ hit maker explained that to form a unique highlife song it could be derived from ‘Agbadza’ ‘Kpalogo’ or ‘Adowa’ rhythms which are all is considered highlife as long as “we package these rhythms knowing that it is unique and exploit it”
Rex, who is passionate about music said “I smoke music, smell music and sleep music. Music is in me”
However, Rex cautioned youth to be mindful not to solely depend on music as career but use other means of work to support.
