Jay Bhad, the prominent figure of the Asakaa Movement, has vehemently denied allegations that the group is responsible for Yaw Tog’s career decline.
It seems that Yaw Tog’s career has hit a rough patch, as he has failed to make significant progress in recent years following the release of the remix of his hit song ‘Sore,’ featuring American rapper Stormzy.
In contrast, the Asakaa Boys have been on a whirlwind world tour, captivating audiences with their electrifying performances at major concerts across the globe.
The group’s meteoric rise has sparked conversations among internet users.
One prevailing notion suggests that the Asakaa Group may have intentionally suppressed Yaw Tog’s work, leading to the stagnation of his career.
According to some online users, the group may have even swapped careers with Yaw Tog.
However, Jay Bhad has refuted these claims, asserting that no such actions have taken place. He further explains that Yaw Tog is currently facing the consequences of his own actions.
Jay Bhad alleges that Yaw Tog had schemed to tarnish the Asakaa Boys’ reputation and hinder their opportunities, but his plan backfired.
Providing more insight into his claims, Jay Bhad reveals that Yaw Tog, who once benefited from the group’s support, repaid them with malice by spreading negative narratives about them to potential business partners, including Stormzy.
“We haven’t buried him or his career. We haven’t dug the ground to bury his CDs. He plotted evil for us and now he is suffering from it. We have a clean mindset and nobody wishes him evil. For what?
“When the ‘Sore’ record came out, it went viral. Vic Mensa, Stormzy, and co were posting. Now it got to a point where Stormzy wanted a remix. We were five on the track, and we felt this was the time for us to go global.
“Now you selected only two people to be on the remix. You said you wanted just me and O’ Kenneth and it felt like you have abandoned the rest. Stormzy did not come for just you.
“And now even when you go for interviews you tell the world that the original verse of Sore is dead. He received an award and gave shout-outs to his haters. Who are your haters?” he stated in a discussion on GHPage.
Jay Bhad who feels bitter about the turn of events recounted how they discovered, nurtured, and supported Yaw Tog who started music as a novice.
“We begged your mother to allow you to work and showcase your talent. He was not the type that was allowed to go out but we assured his mother that we would groom him, take care of him, and ensure that he was safe.
“You come to the trap house to eat and record for free. When City Boy shot your music video and we released the track. He didn’t even know some of the instruments and the way things were done. We had to take him through,” he added.
