The newest sensation in the Ghanaian music industry has been young Kumerican artist, Yaw Tog. His Sore Remix which featured Stormzy and Kwesi Arthur has amassed 1M and counting views in three days. While the world and especially Ghanaians are celeb rating his feat, it seems some others want to kill his career even before it starts.
In an absurd twitter conversation, Yaw Tog was being compared to Sarkodie. While this seemed like something that looked like a win for the young champ, it also could be a major blow in his career if looked at closely.
Truth is, even for just the common Ghanaian music lover, such comparisons puts Yaw Tog in. the bad light, starting up questions like, “When did he come?” and the worse kind, “lets see how far he goes.” To the hard core Sark Native( Fanfooler) this is outright dislike for the young musician.
Hopefully, artist over the years have grown past such social media agenda and shenanigans. But in the past Sarkodie has not been one that looks past such agenda, he replies and takes actions on all forms of jabs thrown at him, albeit subtle or in his own time, he sure has a way to reply. Casing point with Cold, Sub zero, Quick One and Advice.
