Yaw TOG Finally Reacts To Bashing Over Stormzy Comment; Teases Critics In New Video
Teen rapper Yaw TOG, known in private life as Thorsten Owusu Gyimah, has finally responded to criticisms over comments he made about British rapper Stormzy.
Yaw TOG, while speaking in an interview with MzGee on TV3, claimed that he made Stormzy more popular in Ghana because many people did not know him.
“He made me more popular in this market. I made him more popular here too because people didn’t know Stormzy in Ghana here,” Yaw Tog said.
Yaw TOG’s statement was in reference to a remix of his Sore track he did with Stormzy a few months ago.
The remix saw Stormz, who is of Ghanaian descent, fly to Kumasi where Yaw TOG is based to shoot video. The video turned out to be very successful on social media as it clocked one million views on YouTube within one week.
Amid the criticisms, Yaw TOG posted the contentious part of his interview on Instagram and explained that people are misconstruing his statement.
“It’s quite unfortunate a very harmless comment I made during a recent interview has been misconstrued by a few for whatever reason but regardless, we move. It’s Big Mike on the Remix,” he said.
Later, Yaw TOG came live on Instagram and had few minutes chat with his fans to assure them that everything was fine with eat.
Eating ‘Hausa kooko and koose’ with his colleague, Kweku Flick, Yaw TOG shouted “forgetti obiaa’ which literally translates as ‘forget everybody’, an indication to his fans that he does not care.
