During an interview with Hello FM based in Kumasi, Yaw Tog explained that he believes he can achieve greater financial success through his music than he would with a university degree.

"University won't provide me with the means to sustain myself in life," stated Tog confidently. "I have strategized my life in a way that I will make money before pursuing a university education. If I enroll now, who will bear the burden of my tuition fees?"

Tog's choice is not an isolated one, as an increasing number of young musicians have been opting to prioritize their careers over pursuing a university degree in recent years. This trend can be attributed to several factors.


Firstly, the music industry has become exceptionally profitable, particularly with the advent of streaming services. Musicians now have the opportunity to reach a global audience and generate substantial income from their craft.

Only time will tell whether Yaw Tog's decision to pause his education will yield the desired outcomes
