Ghanaian musician Enoch Nana Yaw Oduro-Adjei known in showbiz as Trigmatic has called on Ghanaians to push forth the cause for a national agenda.
According to him, Ghanaians have lost their sense of identity because they have ditched their core attributes.
Speaking to AJ Sarpong, he said given the power to change one thing about the music industry, he would set an agenda to inculcate the values of Ghana in its citizens.
“We don’t even have a national agenda. If we had an agenda and it is to promote brand Ghana, government will sponsor that agenda, corporate Ghana will sponsor that agenda, Ghana will be taught in schools, folklores will be on the rise like it is done in Nigeria,” he said.
He also noted that when one goes to Nigeria, it is easy to feel their culture but while in Ghana it is difficult to determine whether they are in Ghana, America or London.
The ‘Motro Modwo’ singer said when that when a national agenda is set, ” the media will plug that in, the educational sector will plug that in, the health sector will plug that in because everything Ghana must be promoted.”
Most importantly, he stated that musicians would make sure they include the theme of Ghana in their songs and music videos. This according to him, will help contribute to national development.
Trigmatic reiterated that music must be taught in schools just like any other subject because it contributes to cognitive development of pupils.
Stressing how useful music is, he intimated that it is about time people changed the misconception that music is for people who have failed in life.
Trigmatic has a music club called the Matic Music Club which teaches young children the rudiments of music.
A few days ago, he held ‘My Life’ concert at Alliance Francaise to honour Obuoba JA Adofo, Aka Blay and Hugh Masekela.
