Highlife troubadour, Rex Omar is set to release his second single following his return to the music scene with a tune entitled “Highlife Agogo.”

The release of “Highlife Agogo” on A.U. Day, May 25 is in line with his promise to release a single every month for the next thirty six months.

Rex describes “Highlife Agogo” as a dancefloor filler with a big band feel and a dash of salsa to it. According to him, his choice of a salsa flavour for the tune follows the cosmopolitan influences on highlife which draws heavily on the African vibes of our trans-Atlantic kindred.

Rex Omar’s trademark is danceable highlife grooves cast in the big band mould with exquisite arrangements. His first single dubbed “Nhyira”, a mid-tempo gospel flavoured tune is enjoying nationwide airplay following a series of successful radio tours in selected cities.

Rex Omar is an award winning singer, songwriter and arranger and a onetime member of the trio Nakorex. He is currently chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) and a member of the Joint Committee of Collective Management Organizations (JCCMOs). His career spans over three decades and he continues to record, perform and mentor other musicians.
