Fast-rising Ghanaian artist, Yaw Tog, is facing heavy criticism following the release of his latest freestyle which he released a few days ago and decided to title it "Me".
The song saw Tog bragging about his collaboration with Ghanaian-British star, Stormzy and garnering 1 million Youtube views in just three days.
"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?" Tog was heard rapping.
A number of Ghanaians who listened to the latest work of the young musician appeared unimpressed by the song with many calling out the poster child for a poor freestyle, and the display of locally acquired foreign accent (LAFA).
"Yaw Tog Really disgrace me. Ei What this? My eardrum all dey pain me," one fan wrote on Twitter after listening to the song.
The video of the freestyle posted on Twitter has over 100, 000 views.
Tog is known for his song 'Sore' which was released in September 2020. The remix of the song which featured Stormzy and Kwesi Arthur was released early this year.
In March 2021, he released his debut EP titled 'Time.'
“I’m very much an Asakaa boy, but I wanted people to know I can do every type of music, from drill to hip-hop and afrobeats,” shared Tog in a recent interview with DJ Mag.
“I want to build connections with this one, with people from every genre,” Yaw Tog is noted to have said during the EP release.

Speaking about Ghanaian artistes, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that award-winning Ghanaian artiste, Martin King Arthur, known by the stage name Kofi Kinaata, has wowed his teeming fanbase with a sneak peek into his house and living room.
In a new video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Things Fall Apart hitmaker's official Instagram page, Kofi was seen in front of his house, which had several cars parked in it.
The video went on to show the inside of the plush home particularly his living room which was nothing short of extraordinary.
