Fast-rising Ghanaian Rapper, Yaw Tog yesterday released a freestyle where he bragged about his rise to fame but social media users were not impressed.
The young rapper after getting massive recognition from BET decided to appreciate the love and also detail his musical journey through the freestyle dubbed ‘ME’.
The Kumerican rapper in his rap asked; “who got on Billboard last year and got a mili in three days … do you got hit songs like me? Stormzy came in for who? And who is that black boy winning?”

Whilst others arguably appreciate his lyricism and rapper’s boastful attitude in the freestyle, some have raised concern over the accent he used in delivering the freestyle.
According to most of them, he doesn’t sound authentic because he is trying to copy Stormzy.
This conversation has sparked a trending Yaw Tog and Stormzy debate on Twitter as tweets either defended the ‘Sore’ rapper or advised him to stick to rapping in Twi to be himself.
Below are some of the reactions by Twitter users;
It's just one bad Freestyle. Obviously Yaw Tog still dey learn but the dragging dier Eno dey make sense. Wa ka kakra 3y3! U drag am saaa since yesterday adɛn. Hoh

How can you claim RAP KING with 1 hit song ‘SORE’ that featured others on it… drop a solo project and get the buzz , get more hit songs for yourself then start to brag , cos with this your single song you no reach, how far is the TIME EP? Yaw TOG for sit down and learn!!

I just listened to that Yaw Tog's Freestyle and I can say it's a trash but I'm okay. We even listen to Medikal"s rap.

If I was Yaw Tog, I would have been up all night writing a new freestyle. Call the video guy and shoot another freestyle then drop it 6PM today just to prove everybody wrong!!!.

Though this freestyle isn’t the best from Yaw Tog but I believe he will bring out something big that will shock y’all dragging him.
