Last night, the "Sore" hitmaker, who is presently in the United Kingdom for the 2021 edition of the "Ghana Party in the Park" festival, received an invitation to Stormzy's birthday party, which he accepted.
Stormzy celebrated his birthday with a spectacular party at a London nightclub yesterday, with a large number of his pals in attendance to honor the event and celebrate him.
Yaw Tog was one of the guests that invaded the venue to express his affection for him.
They performed a remix of the song "Sore," which set a new record.
During an interview with MzGee about his historic collaboration with the U.K. rap star on TV3, the teenage rapper was told that people say he made Stormzy more popular in Ghana.
"Ok, okay, I'll claim he made me more popular in this market," Yaw Tog answered when the TV host inquired if this was true. I also helped him gain popularity in Ghana, where many people were unfamiliar with Stormzy.
So we both did magic to ourselves".
However, a part of the interview where the OWASS final year student could only be heard saying, " I made him more popular here too because people didn't know Stormzy in Ghana here" has gone viral which is attracting him backlash for disrespecting Stormzy.
Sammy Forson, a radio host, tweeted: "Yaw Tog's words on popularizing Stomzy in GH are the kind that, sadly, encourage selfish behavior in the industry... You won't lose talk if you know what it takes to be a major musician in the UK and have your music played in other areas of Europe... Smh... Concentrate on your music."
