According to him, he’ll never allow his children to do music for a living in Ghana as creative arts in this country doesn’t pay. As a result, he advised musicians especially the up and coming ones not to rely solely on the proceeds they make from their music but venture into other business activities to keep them going.

“Once you are an up and coming, be sure you don’t throw your education away. Try to be sure that as you’re pursuing your music career, you do something that will put food on your table. Until you start earning a serious income from music, do something to support yourself. For it’s very dangerous today here in Ghana for a young person to start and say pursuing music as a full-time job”, Rex Omar cautioned.
