Rising Ghanaian rapper Yaw Tog (real name Thorsten Owusu Gyimah) has said he does not see himself as famous despite his growing fame.
The ‘Sei Mu’ singer said in a recent interview on Kastle FM that despite widespread belief in his status as a major musician, he refuses to accept that label for himself.
“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 “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 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 stated.
