Renowned highlife musician, Rex Omar, has clapped back at all who have asked that he retires from the music industry.
The “Abiba” hit maker said in an interview with Sammy Flex on Zylofon 102.1FM that, he may only quit music if he hits 100 years, giving him 47 more years to pursue music.
He fumed over the effort of young musicians to push veterans out of the music business.
“Music is global and the world is big enough for all of us. I don’t need to step down for anyone. Maybe when I’m 100 years old, I’ll quit”, he stated.
The musician, who doubles as the President for the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMMRO), further said he has now matured in music, despite over 30 years of experience in the industry.
He urged the new crop of artistes, to stop fighting for media space with the veterans, as the industry can accommodate masses.
Rex added that, creativity has its own power and so long as music is good, it can stand the test of time, hence, he is not fazed by criticism.
