It is no news that bad songs make the most hits, we have grown used to that and Patapaa’s songs are a typical example. According to veteran highlife artist Rex Omar, he has deliberately done explicit and less sensible songs before.
In an interview with the controversial Delay; he said that there is nothing like s3xual immorality in the eyes of God and he the creator understands his creation. “It is God who created us. God understand sexual immorality. What we as humans call sexual immorality is a relationship between a man and a woman.
“There is nothing sexually immoral about me writing about my wife. Abiba is my wife. Konka: ‘AbenaMma pa maame’ is my wife’s name. So like a songwriter, if I write about my wife or as a painter, and you see it as sexually immoral; I can decide to paint my wife’s naked picture or half-naked picture, she is my wife.”
“I deliberately composed those sexually explicit songs,” the ‘Abiba’ hitmaker said.
“Sensible songs don’t sell at that time. That was the time; the group Nakorex split and people had forgotten Rex Omar; so I needed to bounce back. I released Kotosa and I think that album has a whole lot of good songs which I promoted but did not receive the needed attention,” he said.
