Matoma is well-known for expressing positivity through his music as well as through his philanthropic endeavors. Last April, as the war in Ukraine intensified, he showcased three billboards on the i-10 highway to Coachella, during peak festival timing; originally intended for promoting his new music. As the tragic war took shape in our global consciousness, he instead decided to put his displays towards raising funds and awareness for Ukraine’s humanitarian aid organization Music Saves UA.
