Black Sherif has clarified that he’s not from a poor background as he seems to personify in his music.
The rapper and singer whose new single Kwaku The Traveller is doing well across all digital platforms after it was released a few days ago, told ace broadcaster, Abieku Santana, on Okay FM that his parents are doing well financially.
.”My father’s name is Be Bold. My father is in Greece, my mother is in Greece as well,” he said. I am not Dada ba but my dad is a big man he has money,” emphasises. When Abeiku Santana asked what his father does, he replied, “he deals in car tyres. When you go to Konongo check him out”.
He continued that “so if you need tyres, go there, if you mention my name they can direct. My dad is into engines as well so there’s something small in his pocket”
In a related development, Wei Y3 Oteng has backed Black Sherif to shine at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards stressing that he has street credibility and that makes him top-notch.
Speaking to Akorfa on Simply Showbiz, the famous producer said Black Sherif has done enough within this short period to make himself visible in the mainstream and deserves to scoop some awards at the VGMAs.
“I will not bypass Black Sherif for anything. Because seriously, from nowhere, Black Sherif’s song was like a wildfire being fueled consistently to the point of having a collaboration, which he never initiated.
“You have the First Sermon, which never took it lightly with the people, pierced everybody like a sharp arrow, and then continued with the Second Sermon, which raised the First Sermon’s bar and caught the attention of the international scene and had everybody,” he added.
Oteng added that Black Sherif’s vibrancy on the streets, consistency, and exposure to the international market are the key elements that would make him win the Best New Artiste easily.
