“It happened in a certain way, but my stubbornness was too much for my mother, so she woke up one day and told me to stop playing football,” Yaw Tog told Amansan Krakye. “I was a little perplexed, but I couldn’t do anything about it because I had to stop playing football, so when I stayed home, that’s when I started listening to music,” Yaw Tog said when speaking on an interview at Kastle FM.
Talking about how he moved on after quitting football on Kastle FM in Cape Coast, Yaw Tog said he was influenced to do music after listening to Kwesi Arthur’s songs.
