Veteran Ghanaian highlife artiste, Rex Omar, has asserted that there is no genre of music known as gospel.

He enunciated that gospel comes from the highlife genre.

“There is no genre of music called Gospel. If you listened to any of my albums, you will know that I have what Ghanaians call it gospel on it. There is not a single album from me which doesn’t have a gospel song.

“Even ‘Nhyira’ that I came out with is highlife but it is gospel. The genre is highlife but it is the message that determines whether it is a gospel song or not,” he told DJ Murphy Lee on Bohye FM’s Midmorning show.

When asked if he would manage any artiste, he said he is monitoring some artistes and at the right time, he will venture into that field.
