Singer and rapper, Enoch Nana Yaw Oduro-Adjei, popularly known as Trigmatic, says he would choose a different name if he could go back in time.
Trigmatic said he chose his name out of the blue during an interview session, an action he now considers to be impromptu.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Tuesday, the rapper urged emerging artistes to be mindful of the names they choose to represent their brand.
“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,” he said.
He added, “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.”
The only musician whose name truly represents his craft is Ghanaian rapper, Ahkan, Trigmatic added in the interview with Andy Dosty.
He 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.
