Yaw Tog, the Ghanaian rapper, has stated that his debut music recording, Holy, was terrible and that he can barely remember the lyrics due to the poor quality.
The award-winning rapper, who recently graduated from Kumasi’s Opoku Ware School, stated that he began his career in 2018 while still in school, describing the experience as challenging.
Because he needed to generate more money, he dropped out of boarding school and became a day student.
“I was making music, but it wasn’t that serious,” he said in an interview with Nana Quasi-Wusu (PM), presenter of the Dryve of Your Lyfe show on Y97.9 FM. I may claim that I began my music career in 2018, and by 2020, I had my hit tunes.”
In describing the origins of drill music in Kumasi, he stated that the genre became popular due to a fashion trend in the city. Inspiring artists to use it to create popular songs, eventually giving birth to the Kumerican brand.
The Sore hitmaker also revealed that his stage name, Yaw Tog, is an acronym for his given name, Thorsten Owusu Gyimah. Since graduating from high school, he has recorded two successful singles, the most recent of which being Sei Mu.
