Legendary Ghanaian highlife musician, Rex Omar has jabbed controversial dancehall artiste,Charles Nii Armah Mensah best known as Shatta Wale on the type of genre he classifies his music.

According to Rex Omar, the songs produced by Shatta Wale are highlife songs that would have been promoted worldwide if he tagged them as ‘rudebwoy highlife’ rather than dancehall adding that Shatta Wale is playing good highlife tunes and making big hits out of it yet he calls it dancehall.

Born Rex Owusu Marfo, the veteran highlife musician who was speaking in an interview with satirist KSM urged the 'Freedom' hitmaker to consider a name change for his music as it will help him sell better.

The 'Abiba' hitmaker said; “With his rudeness and all that, if he has called his highlife maybe rudebwoy highlife or something like that then it would have taken our music somewhere else”

He further stated that original Ghanaian music genres such as Adowa, Asikyi Odonsun, Apatampa, Kwaw, Agbadza and Boboobo among others were present but colonial masters preferred to name them as highlife and to make highlife music survive.

Rex Omar who is also the Ghana Music Right Owners (GHAMRO) chairman pledge to release a track every month.
