Yaw Tog, a 17-year old Ghanaian rapper, is the new featured artist in Apple Music’s Africa Rising artist growth program (real name Thorsten Owusu Gyimah).
“I’m ecstatic and honored to be the next artist to represent Africa Rising.
I am grateful for the love and support that my fans, music fans all over the world, and the Apple Music team have shown me thus far.
I don’t take something for granted, and I’ll keep working to put Ghana on the map.”
Yaw’s debut single “Sore” (2020) became the first video of its kind to notch a million views, pioneering a form of drill known as Asakaa that originated from the streets of Kumasi, Ghana.
