High-life music, a genre of music popular among veteran musicians in Ghana has over the years gone under serious scrutiny over it’s disappearance.
While most believe the genre of music has faded especially among the current generation, others are of the view that a lot more should be done to make the genre a lot better among the current generation.
Veteran musician, Rex Omar has shared his view on his hopes of the survival of the high-life and has said that he lost hope in the survival of the genre he grew up to meet and even take as a career until the arrival of youngsters Kuame Eugene, Kidi, Adina just to mention but a few.
The veteran musician, who doubles as the chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) said a few years ago, he got sad about the survival of the highlife music until he listened to the new crop of artistes springing up with passion for the genre. “But when I started hearing Kuami Eugene and the Adinas and the KiDis, I said wow. These guys would take the mantle and then we would be behind the scenes supporting,” he said in an interview on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.
Rex Omar advised Kuame Eugene who was also present in the studios to keep up with the good work.
