Secular artistes who change their stock-in-trade to become pastors has now become a trend in the country and the latest to add to the list is Ghanaian musician, Nana Yaw Oduro-Agyei, famed as Trigmatic.
Of what has become a growing trend, some Ghanaian musicians notable for churning out “secular” songs as either highlife or hiplife artistes are ditching the genres to become pastors.
And Ghanaian rapper and songwriter, Trigmatic, has added his name to the increasing number.
He revealed that he’s currently a youth pastor at the Potter’s Family Chapel in Accra. And says he is determined to use his leverage in the music industry to positively impact the lives of people.
“Man was created in life for two things; to serve God and to serve mankind”, he said in an interview on Vim Talk, hosted by Afia Pokua.
Trigmatic indicated he’s served his due as a circular artiste and believes it’s pressing on him to serve as a representative and ambassador of God’s Kingdom.
He remarked when he was asked why he decided to become a pastor. And says each person has to determine the trajectory of their destiny.
“I have to be able to serve God. I am a very influential person, so if I can’t use my influence to impact people positively, or towards God, then what is the point of it?”, he added.
Trigmatic, who received nominations in the recently held 3Music Awards said “awards are essential to the point that one day we can refer to them as a reflection of the quality of job we did.”
He also said lack of shared understanding and lack of clarity in defining the various categories often results in controversies during awards.
The hiplife sensation now turned pastor is set to release his new song.
