Yaw Tog, a Ghanaian musician who has won awards, has said that despite his success, he still thinks of himself as a celebrity.
Following the release of a song with his band Asakaa, Yaw Tog rose to fame. Most notably, he became known for the Chris Rich-produced remix of his viral song “Sore,” which also featured O’Kenneth, City Boy, Reggies & Jay Bahd, Kwesi Arthur, and Stormzy.
Yaw Tog told Amansan Krakye in an exclusive interview that, despite his success in the music business and the fact that many people think of him as a star, he does not yet think of himself as one.
“To me, fame has not really entered me so I live my life as a normal person and I don’t see myself as a big artiste who is so proud or arrogant,” he disclosed.
He added that he doesn’t want to think of himself as a celebrity because he doesn’t want to become haughty about it, which accounts for his humility. His words are
“Although people see me as a big artiste the moment you also see yourself as a celebrity or big artiste it makes the fame enter you to do certain things that you’ll regret later on.
“So for now I will say that it’s the people that are doing everything like this is Yaw the celebrity but I don’t see myself as a celebrity or big artiste,” he said on Cape Coast-based Kastle FM.
“I shouldn’t even think about that to the extent that it will enter my head to feel too big for people to easily approach or talk to me,” he concluded on the Kastle Drive Show.
