Ghanaian Drill rapper Yaw Tog has expressed interest in exploring cannabis cultivation following the recent passing of the Narcotics Control Commission Amendment Bill 2023, which has opened up new opportunities in Ghana’s cannabis industry.
Yaw Tog sees possibilities in the cannabis production sector now that the Ministry of Interior is in charge of awarding permits.
The ‘Sore Hitmaker’ stated in an interview with BRYT TV that if he has the financial means and believes it is a feasible business, he would consider obtaining a license and investing in the industry. He admitted that it is a commercial decision and that if circumstances allow, he will investigate this option.
Yaw Tog has taken the initiative to diversify his investments and seek alternatives outside of his music career. The rapper, who is currently active in pig farming, revealed on Tv3 New Day that he is working on constructing a huge pig farm near Kumasi.
While Yaw Tog is focused on entrepreneurship and growing his various ventures, he has also been vocal about his decision not to pursue a university education. In an interview with Hello FM in Kumasi, the 20-year-old high school graduate explained that he believes his music career and other endeavors will provide him with the means to sustain himself in life, and therefore, he has no immediate plans to attend university.
However, some elements of the Ghanaian populace criticized his education position. Despite the criticism, Yaw Tog is committed to following his interests and broadening his horizons in the business sector, demonstrating his willingness to carve out a successful career for himself outside of traditional academic channels.
