Yaw Tog’s truth was needless – D-Black
Musician D- Black has waded into the conversation about Yaw Tog’s comment that he made British rapper Stormzy popular in Ghana.
According to him, the Kumasi-based young artiste stated the obvious except that it was needless for him to have done that.
Yaw Tog featured the British rapper on the remix of his hit song Sore alongside Kwesi Arthur.
“My opinion is that I don’t feel there was the need to say it at that point. It makes you look a certain way and gives a certain perception to the listener, but I don’t think he lied about it; it is the truth. He made [Stormzy] more popular in that regard in Ghana, but I don’t think it needed to be said.”
In an interview on Takoradi-based Connect FM, the Black Avenue Muzik boss said, “to be honest with you. I don’t think he lied. He told the truth”.
D-Black was in the Western Regional capital of Sekondi-Takoradi to promote his new album Loyalty alongside a signee to his label, S3fa.
Over the last few days, fast-rising Ghanaian rapper Yaw Tog has split the internet over comments he made in an interview on TV3‘s New Day about UK-based superstar Stormzy, after the former featured him on the remix version of his Sore hit song, alongside Kwesi Arthur.
Responding to perceptions that Stormzy made him more popular or perhaps, he made Stormzy more recognized in the market, Yaw Tog said:
“He made me more popular in this market, but I made him more popular too. We both did magic to ourselves and magic to our brands”.
