The “Kumerica” music drill, according to Torsten Owusu Gyimah, also known as Yaw Tog in the music industry, is not meant to encourage violence among the youth, but rather to motivate them in their daily hustle.
Yaw Tog, one of the “Asakaa” rising stars, expressed his delight with the genre’s progress in an interview with GNA Entertainment, saying they want to take it to a new level that will reach people from the international world.
“We taking it to a different level and it is a worldwide thing, so the next generation would see how it all started.
“The Kumerica drill is like preaching about our lives and the daily hustle and it is not about promoting violence. Our drill is just like other artistes doing music but ours expresses the pain from the hustle and how we have overcome the numerous challenges to become successful and that is where we derive our joy,’’ he said.
On his career path, the 19-year-old said, “My career started three years ago with some ups and downs but we still stood strong, there were thoughts about giving up but I never gave up and went in hard and we got here,”
Yaw Tog who is a final year student of Opoku Ware Senior High School names Kwesi Arthur as his biggest inspiration. He also revealed that “Asakaa” fans should watch out for a seven-track EP dropping this month.
