Rex Omar has promised to drop a new song every month as a way to keep the genre alive.
“I will be releasing different types of highlife every month. I am trying to redefine highlife. Nobody can deny the fact that highlife emanated from Ghana. All highlife musicians who are giving up should go back to the studios and work,” he told Starr FM’s KOD.
“Highlife started in Ghana but was not played by Ghanaians at the time. It was appreciated by other people in different countries. Osibisa was not known as a highlife band, though most of their songs were highlife songs. Building a brand is very difficult. The highlife brand has been with us for ages and it is important that we embrace it.“
