Highlife legend, Rex Omar believes that, it is not necessary to compare Highlife and Hiplife since the two genres originated from Ghana.

According to the "Paapa" singer, western cultures have influenced that of ours but that shouldn't prevent us from promoting the genres.

Speaking on Kumasi based Angel FM, he said “Hiplife is a generational thing which can be found in other parts of the world. We are living in a global world where Westerners have bombarded us with their culture through their media and that applies to music, the more you hear, the more it inks in your blood.

I don’t believe it is necessary to say Hiplife should be killed leaving Highlife or Highlife should be killed leaving only highlife. We should project both together for those who want to sing Hiplife to do and do it well and for the others who want to toe the Highlife lane to also do and do it well. At the end of the day if its Hiplife, its Ghana and if its Highlife, it’s the same Ghana.”
