Mohammed Ismail Sherif Popularly known as Black Sheriff, the youngster was honoured at the 2023 Soundcity Awards as the best hip-hop act of the year with his global hit “Kwaku the Traveler.” The Sound City MVP award is presented by Sound City TV and recognizes musicians and performers from Africa and around the world.
Black Sherif has proven himself worthy of his rewards after he released his second sermon freestyle, which projected him to the limelight and allowed the African giant Burnaby to bless him with a verse that resulted in the second sermon remix after Black Sherif dropped his first debut album, “The Villain I Never Was,” which also helped the youngster gain global recognition.
Black Sheriff had a successful look back into 2022, he got himself a gold platinum from the digital streaming platform Boomplay as the first Ghanaian artist to hit 200 million streams on Boomplay. Black Sherif, the youngster, is here to stay and feed the people with good music and positive vibes. The Traveller “can’t nobody stop a man,” as he stated in a line from his global hit Kwaku (Black Sherif deserves all the credit for his brief career in music).
