Famous Ghanaian rapper / musician Black Sherif, real name Mohammed Ismail Sharrif, has teased a new project on his X account.
This follows his spectacular victory as the Best International Flow Act at the 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards, where he defeated competitors including Sampa The Great (Zambia), Central Cee (UK), Gazo (France), J Hus (Uk), K.O (South Africa), Major Rd (Brazil), Ninho (France), and Aka (South the continent of Africa).
The 21-year-old’s most recent release, a double-single EP called Take Care of Yourself Blacko, was a rallying cry for music enthusiasts and his fans to put their physical health first because a healthy lifestyle also benefits the mind.
By virtue of being one of Ghana’s most celebrated artists and a leading figure in contemporary international music, the rapper’s title implies that he is aware of the responsibility that comes with his position. It’s a statement that not only suggests the diversions that come with rising celebrity but also demonstrates his refusal to participate in it.
While “YAYA” focuses more on the theme of vacationing and getting tan from seaside adventures, “SIMMER DOWN” is a rare moment of reflection on his team’s triumphs, highlighting Ghana’s emerging music scene and Black Sherif’s effect on it.
