Veteran highlife musician, Rex Omar has disclosed the last time he stepped foot in a church was in 1997.
In an interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso on the Delay Show, the 'Abiba' hitmaker explained he no longer goes to church because his body is the temple of God.
According to him, God lives in him which he is content with, and stressed he believes going to church will rather take away his direct relationship with God.
“My last time in church was in 1997. I no longer go to church because my body is the temple of God. God lives in me. So I have a direct relationship with God. So that is enough for me,” he said.
The musician who doubles as the Chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) believes the church makes people narrow-minded in thinking and prevents people from asking questions.
According to him, God did not create humans to be silent and not to ask questions.
“…and there are so many questions, unanswered questions even with the Bible. The church makes you a narrow-minded in your thinking. So many questions when asked, it’s like a taboo.
Simple question; from Jesus Christ’s twelve (12) years to His thirtieth (30) year when He started His ministry; eighteen (18) years of Jesus Christ life is not in the Bible. When you ask the pastors, they tell you the Bible is silent about it. God doesn’t want us to be silent. He wants us to know. He is in us,” he added
He disclosed that he has given his children the opportunity to discover themselves and their God, and stressed it gives them the confidence to express themselves.
"My wife was attending Apostolic when I married her. It got to a point she decided to go to Jehovah Witness. Fine! You go to your Jehovah Witness, don’t push me because I will not push you,” he explained.
Rex Omar has hits songs like 'Konka', 'Dada Di Da', 'Aware Pa', 'Lady', 'Kele Ngele', 'Abiba', amongst others to his credit.
He bounced back into the music scene in 2018 with a gospel song titled; 'Nhyira' which featured Trigmatic.
