Rapper Yaw Tog says he put his education on hold because has to work harder to support his family since he is the breadwinner of the family.
In an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, the 20-year-old said that because he is the only son in his family, he has the responsibility of providing for them.
“School is waiting at the moment. Where I am from I am the breadwinner. I need to go hard for the family to secure everything for them before I continue school,” he explained.
The ‘Sore’ hitmaker further explains that because his parents are separated, he has automatically assumed the role of the man of the house.
He also shared that he still has a cool relationship with his father who also lives in Kumasi.
“My mom and dad are separated so I feel like I am the man of the house now. My dad also lives with us in Kumasi and we are cool.”
Yaw Tog added that aside from music, he runs other businesses with the support of his family and brother-in-law who also doubles as his manager.
“The cash comes in ‘small small’. Through shows and other small businesses,” he said.
The My Ex rapper believes that with his current grades from Senior High School, he could gain admission to any university.
“I had good grades in high school. Anytime I pick my school results any school will give me admission and that’s why I am not worried about school,” he said.
