Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Yaw Tog, Kweku Flick and Kofi Jamar represent the new era of Ghanaian music, according to rapper Sarkodie.
In a tweet, Sarkodie posted two photos of the artistes and touted what they mean to the current state of music made in Ghana, and by Ghanaian artistes.
The mentioned artistes performed at the recently held Ghana Party in the Park held over the weekend.
" Face of [Ghana Music]" posted Sarkodie.
Tog is known for his song 'Sore' whilst Flick, who is sometimes mistaken for Kwesi Arthur because of how he sounds is the person behind the hit song 'Money.'
Jamar is known for the street anthem 'Ekorso.'
As expected, the take by Sarkodie drew a variety of opinions.
YEN.com.gh has compiled some of the reactions to Sarkodie's assertion below.

Guys please make him proud."

Meanwhile, Yaw Tog was recently in the news for saying that Stormzy, the UK-based Ghanaian rapper, became more popular in Ghana following his Sore Remix in which he featured with Kwesi Arthur.
However, he appears to be unshaken by the barrage of criticisms heaped on him and rather accused his critics of misconstruing his statement.
Despite being lambasted by a large group, some top celebrities supported Yaw Tog and explained why they agree with him on his statement.
Also, YEN.com.gh reported a video of Tog sounding British after spending a few days in the United Kingdom. He was in the country to perform at the 2021 Ghana Party in the Park Festival.
In the video, Tog speaks to a second person whilst showcasing his newfound accent.
