Trigmatic emphasizes the need for change in Ghanaian music

Ghanaian music star, Trigmatic says he seeks to propel change in the Ghanaian society through his music. To this end, he is consciously shifting from the very youthful music he is known for towards more mature lyrics.

The award winning musician told solid FM’s Kwame Poku who is also known as Kwame Scientific he feels the need for change. He believes his lyrical orientation has changed because he is growing and naturally thinking a lot about making his songs stand the test of time.

He says “It has gotten to a point where you are unable to wear the things you used to wear or visit the places you hitherto frequented. I feel everything must change. It means a change in lyrics; more live performances…every part of the art must grow. The whole Ghana needs to change.”

He thanked his fans for remaining loyal despite the changes he is exhibiting.

Trigmatic’s song “wo sika nti” has received three (3) nominations at the forthcoming Ghana Music Awards and the young musician says the nominations excite him and makes him feel appreciated.

He has been nominated for the Song writer of the year, Record of the year and Collaboration of the year.

He also expressed surprise his song ‘Miss Julie’ featuring Shatta Wale is now catching on with fans. He says the song has been around for quite some time.
