Award-winning Ghanaian artist Yaw Tog has disclosed that he does see himself as a celebrity even after breaking through the music space.
Yaw Tog became a household name after he came out with a song with his music group Asakaa. He is best known for his viral song ‘Sore’ which featured O`Kenneth, City Boy, Reggies & Jay Bahd, and also Kwesi Arthur and Stormzy on the remix produced by Chris Rich.
Speaking with Amansan Krakye in an exclusive interview, Yaw Tog stated that although he has broken through the music space and people see him as a star, he does not see himself as a star yet.
“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 explained that the reason why he doesn’t want to see himself as a celebrity is that he doesn’t want to be swollen-headed about it hence his meekness. In his words, “Although people see me as a big artiste but 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.
