Co-produced with Francis Osei Kweku, Why Where Who —Rex Omar’s latest song —the latest in a series of monthly releases, reflects on the substance of a person’s being, and his place in the universe.
The sobering joint, laden with passionate flute placements, sees the seasoned Highlife/ Afrobeat gem pose a succession of dense questions on the real destination man is journeying towards, when ultimately, it is one’s higher self he should be connected to —not flee from himself.
“To know your destination is to know where you’re coming from/ Life is a drama that you’re just a part of/ And to play your role, you’ve got to know the script ,” he sings.
He also has a few choice words for charlatans parading as preachers of the Holy Word, lamenting their motives.
President of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO), Omar is a multiple-award-winner famed for classics as Abiba, Tokota, Da Di Da Da, and Dangerous, as well as recent cuts as Nhyira and Hilife Agogo.
53, Omar (born Rex Owusu Marfo) has authored and performed music for 35 years.
