Thorsten Owusu Gyimah (born 8 May 2003), better known by his stage name Yaw Tog, is a Ghanaian rapper who specializes in drill music, often known as Asaka in Ghana. He is primarily known for the viral song "Sore," which was remixed by Kwesi Arthur and Stormzy.
Yaw Tog claims to have popularized Stormzy from the United Kingdom in Ghana. Even though Stormzy came in to feature on Sore, he wasn't particularly well-known, according to him. Yaw Tog was chatting to TV3's MzGee in an interview. Yaw Tog, the current winner of the Vodafone Music Awards' Hip Hop Song of the Year, has claimed that he was the one who popularized Stormzy from the United Kingdom in Ghana. In an interview with MzGee on TV3, the Sore hitmaker claimed that he increased Stormzy's popularity in Ghana because many people were unfamiliar with him.
"In this market, he increased my popularity. I also helped him gain popularity in Ghana, where many people were unfamiliar with Stormzy ", stated Yaw Tog. The artist known as the Young Bull, on the other hand, stated that Stormzy was the one who got him famous in the music industry.
After his song Sore made waves in Ghana and gained the attention of the UK-based singer, the young artiste catapulted to fame. To express his support for big talent, the Blinded By Your Grace singer traveled to Ghana to work on a remix of Sore with Yaw Tog. With the help of Kwesi Arthur, the duo worked their magic on the song and managed to generate a banger, just like King Midas.
