Ghana’s celebrated singer/rapper, Black Sherif, hints at an upcoming music project after his triumphant win at the 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards.
The artiste, who was named the Best International Flow Act, is set to delight his fans with new music, building anticipation among music enthusiasts.
Putting his followers and to a larger extent the music community in suspense, the renowned artiste revealed that he was readying something new for his fans as he wrote ‘Almost time for new Blacko until then,” on X in a recent post.
This comes off the heels of his grand win at the 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards, clinching the honours for the Best International Flow Act, triumphing over competition from Aka (South Africa), Central Cee (UK), Gazo (France), J Hus (Uk), K.O (South Africa), Major Rd (Brazil), Ninho (France), Sampa The Great (Zambia) and Tasha & Tracie (Brazil).
The 21-year-old’s last release was a double-single EP titled, Take Care of Yourself Blacko—a clarion call on his fans and music lovers alike to prioritise their physical well-being as the mind thrives on a healthier lifestyle.
The title itself suggests that the rapper acknowledges the weight on his shoulders, being one of Ghana’s most decorated artists at the forefront of global music currently.
It’s a declaration that not only insinuates the distractions that come with increasing stardom but also proves his unwillingness to be a part of it. ‘SIMMERDOWN’ is a rare moment of reflection on his team’s accomplishments, spotlighting Ghana’s nascent music scene and Black Sherif’s influence on it, while ‘YAYA’ leans more on the topic of vacationing and basking in the tan that comes with the sea-sand adventure.
This announcement comes off as a joyous moment for the fans on the X platform, as they have been clamouring for new music from the reigning Artiste of the Year for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2023.
