The song which featured UK rapper Stormzy and Ghanaian rapper Kwesi Arthur garnered 1 million views on Youtube in 3 days becoming the fastest Ghanaian rap song to achieve such a feat on the video streaming app.
Speaking on Pulse Ghana, the sensational budding hip-hop Yaw Tog revealed how he got Stormzy to be on the remix.
He said it happened after the original song was released. He woke up to his management telling him Stormzy wanted to be on the remix.
Upon hearing the news, He found it difficult to believe because Stormy was a hard person to get on a song. To think that such a big brand wanted to work with him was a shock to him.
His management later informed him that Stormy had sent his verse and that was another shock to him.
According to Yaw Tog, it wasn’t planned to have a video for the remix of the song. Stormzy just came to Ghana and remembered he had a song with him so he contacted them and they agreed to shoot the video.
He said the video was done in just a day. He admitted it was stressful for him to do all that in a day but his management was helpful; they pushed him on.
