Veteran highlife musician, Rex Omar, has said he stopped going to church at an early stage of his career because the church left him to his fate when he needed funds to record a song, which later became a hit.
Rex Omar says he had a tough time convincing his father to venture into music as a career due to the perception that musicians then were poor.
“I was a church boy,” the Abiba hitmaker said on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (16 August). “I was working with the church. I was always in church, we go to Atwea Mountain for prayers. So, one day I went to my pastor and I said, ‘I want to go to the studio, can you speak to the church board to fund my recording,’.”
“Later the pastor told me the church board said they cannot fund my recording, that [was] the day I stopped going to church.
“Then I went outside, and I got someone who is a worldly person to fund my recording, and my third recording became a hit, even that recording was a gospel song,” Rex Omar recalled.
