Trigmatic, known in real life as Nana Yaw Oduro, is on a campaign to give back to society the many blessings he has recived from music.
He is currently embarking on a tour dubbed The Trig High School Tour with the sole aim of inspiring Senior High School students in selected schools to aspire to high heights in life and to discover themselves.
The tour kick-started on November 13 and Trigmatic has already visited the Labone Senior High School in Accra and the Ghana National College, Cape Coast. The next phase will take him to Wesley Grammar High School in Accra on December 3 and then later to the Adisadel College in Cape Coast.
During each tour, Trigmatic performs for the students and also gives a talk with an appeal to them to aspire to be whoever they want to be. He also uses the event to sell his CDs and merchandise at discounted prices.
Speaking in an interview with Myjoyonline.com Thursday, Trigmatic said the tour is part of his social responsibility as a musician to give back to society.
“It is part of my social responsibility as a musician to give back. It is my life that I want people to tap into,” he explained, adding that the tour will help students discover themselves and also know that apart from university education, they can make something out of themselves.
He emphasised that “we are not the same so they should discover themselves and own themselves after Senior High School.”
He intends to reach as many schools between now and mid-2011 across the length and breadth of the country. Trigmatic revealed that he has been selected by the United Nations to volunteer as an ambassador to help propagate their developmental goals.
In that light, he will embark on another tour in 2011 to help promote gender balance. He hopes to echo female empowerment through fashion, talks and music. He also said he will be releasing an AIDS awareness song soon to help with his AIDS awareness project that he has been promoting for some time now.
Trigmatic is currently a student of the Central University in Accra pursuing Marketing. He also doubles as a radio presenter. He is widely known for his songs such My life and My Jolly from his Permanent Stain album, his major commercial album after two other underground albums.
