Thorsten Owusu Gyminah, known in the showbiz industry as Yaw Tog, has spoken out against the haras$ment he and his crew faced while in Nigeria for the AFRIMMA Awards.
On December 12th, 2021, the African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) held its 8th edition.
The awards ceremony is centered on African music and African musicians, and the organization has been a consistent supporter for African music on the international stage since its inception in 1997.
Nigerians were nasty to him, his female colleague Gyakie, and his friend Kofi Jamar, among others, according to the “Sore” hitmaker. He claimed that they had been verbally attacked and that they were not recognized as superstars in their own country in his remark.
When it comes to Ghanaian artists, Nigerians don’t treat you as one of their top artists; instead, they treat your like an ordinary person.
“You can’t expect to be treated like Davido or Burna Boy there,” he told Y 107.9 FM’s Kojo Manuel during the ‘Dryve of your Lyfe’.
“When we got there, they treated us differently; everything was normal, as opposed to Ghana, where I would have received some special attention,” says the author. “Things were tough out there,” he said.
As a reminder, rapper Yaw Tog majors in drill music known in Ghana as Asakaa. He is best known for his viral song ‘Sore’ which featured O`Kenneth, City Boy, Reggie & Jay Bahd and also Kwesi Arthur and Stormzy on the remix.
