Ghana’s in-demand music man Black Sherif has successfully headlined his first London concert, dishing copious tunes to the delight of patrons.
The Friday, Nov. 18 show at the iconic KOKO concert venue in Camden Town, London feted patrons popular tunes including “Second Sermon (Remix),” “Kwaku the Traveller,” and “Soja.”
Black Sherif pleasantly surprised patrons when Nigerian Grammy winner and collaborator Burna Boy joined him to perform their single “Second Sermon (Remix).”
Born Mohammed Ismail Sharif, Black Sherif pricked interest with his “First Sermon” release so that by the time the street anthem “Second Sermon,” was baked in July 2021 he had warmed himself into the hearts and minds of the Ghanaian populace.
When “On The Low” crooner Burna Boy featured on the remix a few months later, the Nigerian populace were also sold.
His appeal manifests itself in the millions of views he enjoys on his music videos on YouTube.
He’s topped both the Ghanaian and Nigerian Apple Music charts and on the awards front picked up four awards at the 2022 3Music Awards.
At the 2022 Ghana Music Awards he repelled key opponents as he scooped the Best New Artiste and Best Hip Hop Song.
Black Sherif’s 14-track album, “The Villain I Never Was” is his debut work available on all stores since Oct. 6, 2022.
