Young Ghanaian artist Thorsten Owusu Gyimah known well as Yaw Tog has said that it is disrespectful to compare him to multiple award-winning rapper Sarkodie.
Sarkodie and many other artists have been compared on several occasions with the new artists who have managed to break through in the music industry.
In an interview with Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM, Yaw Tog slammed entertainment pundits who have been comparing him to legendary rapper Sarkodie. “If people compare me with Sarkodie I feel that you guys are disrespecting him because he knows what time is it and where I am right now he’s gone past that stage,”
He explained that he knows nothing about music and that Sarkodie knows everything and need not be compared to him. According to him, it is disrespectful to do so.
“Sarkodie knows everything about the music but I am now learning it so I will say that sometimes in some way there’s no need to do that comparison cos he is the king already”.
The 19-year-old boy stated that he looks up to Sarkodie for inspiration.
He continued on the Kastle Drive Show “I will say that Sarkodie is someone that I really look up to him and I have met him on several occasions that he has advised me a lot.
‘Sarkodie is an elderly person in the music industry that we all take inspiration from him and he’s still active in the music scene already for all these while,” he ended on Kastle FM in Cape Coast.
