Veteran Highlife Musician Rex Omar in an interview with Kasapa FM has revealed that he’s confused about his legendary status in Ghana music industry all other things being equal. www.ghbase.com observed!
Born Rex Owusu Marfo who has been in music industry for many years noted that, tagging a person as a legend signifies that the person’s unprecedented achievements lives even after death.
He claimed per the definition of who a legend is, he is not sure if he has gotten to such level yet, adding that legends are people who have made an impact in their field of endeavours to the extent that they cannot be excluded when honouring people who have contributed so much in that respect.
“I think the Legendary word has been overused in Ghana, generally, Ghanaians love titles. Sometimes when people call me Legend I don’t know whether I’m a Legend or not because I believe that when we say someone is a Legend, he or she is someone who has excelled in their field of endeavor in a very long time that they have had a positive impact in that sector. I can call Bob Marley a Legend because even after his death, his music still lives”9 Rex Omar said.
The release of his album, ‘Dangerous‘ which includes the hit song, ‘Abiba‘ has sold over 300,000 units and is still attracting audiences beyond Ghana’s borders. But currently, he’s the chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) taking care of royalties.
