Highlife artiste Rex Owusu Marfo, popularly known as Rex Omar has released ‘Nhyira’ as part of his attempt to revive highlife in Ghana.
Rex Omar, not long ago, stated that he was going to release a highlife song every month for the next three years so that the highlife genre gets rejuvenated.
“My releases are to demonstrate and also encourage other highlife artistes especially the youth not to give up and to also demonstrate that good highlife music can never lose its attractiveness,” he said.
In an interview with citinewsroom.com, he explained that even though highlife is originally a Ghanaian music genre, other countries are trying to lay claim to it while Ghanaians look on unperturbed.
Rex Omar added that highlife in Ghana is gradually fading out because most of its performers have decided to call it by other names.
In the wake of this, he said there need to be a whole renaissance of the genre, a reason he is embarking on the monthly releases.
‘Nhyira’ talks about God’s blessings on an individual and what it does in their lives. It features Trigmatic.
