Yaw Tog said:
"The contract was not straight forward. I was asked to sign a contract by Life Living records to work with the group but without pay. I was trying to make it for myself so my manager advised that I turn it down. I cannot work without being paid. However, we told them that anytime they needed me, I would be available for them. It was not a big issue".
