Ghanaian rapper and singer Trigmatic has revealed that he regrets his choice of stage name.
According to him, he chose his name out of the blue during an interview session, an action he now considers to be impromptu.
“I had to keep the name ‘Trigmatic’ after I said it in an interview. I was an underground artiste then. Your [stage] name is you and it differentiates you from the next person. Sometimes we just pick names anyhow,” Trigmatic told Andy Dosty on the Daybreak Hitz show on Hitz FM.
The ‘motromodwo’ hitmaker who was advising upcoming artiste on their choice of stage names added that “I took mine for granted. If I knew what I know now I would probably change it. I am discussing that with my management. Samini saw the future and Edem too so they changed theirs. I wish I could go for that kind of name to represent who I was.” he said.
Trigmatic also cited rapper Akhan as one of musicians in Ghana whose name truly represents his craft
He further urged fellow artistes to consider how the names they choose will be pronounced, how kids will call you and what it means in another country, among other factors.
Trigmatic, born Enoch Nana Yaw Oduro-Adjei recently released his fourth studio Album The 8th Element.
The 13 track album features the likes of Prince (BukBak), Akan, Raquel, Wiyaala, Manifest & A.I; with compositions from the likes of Aka Blay, Dela Botri, Karina Suwalski, Sena, Nii, O.T, Cydric, Bismark, Kwame Jnr and Prince Jadon.
