Yaw Tog earlier mentioned that the British musician made him popular in the market before implying that it was a win-win situation for both of them.
However, this comment has not sat well with many Ghanaians who have taken to Twitter to pour out their reactions whilst others try to defend the artiste.
Sammy Forson bashed Yaw Tog saying:
Yaw Tog's comments about making Stomzy popular in GH are the kind that unfortunately encourage selfish behaviour in the industry.. If u know what it takes to be a mainstream artist in the UK and play listed into other parts of europe, u won't loose talk.. Smh.. Focus on ur music
Joey B quickly sprang to Yaw Tog's defence indicating that:
