Black Sherif, the Ghanaian musician, has disclosed that he tried a variety of jobs before landing on music, which he describes as his “passion.”
Some fans refer to him as “Kweku Frimpong” because of his rap freestyle “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon,” which he released this year.
The rapper, whose true name is Mohammed Ismail Sherif, said on the Delay Show that he believes music will be his breakthrough. He is currently a student at the University of Professional Studies in Accra (UPSA), where he is juggling his studies with his newfound passion for music.
“I’m very enthusiastic about my music because I believe it will provide me with something. I’ve tried a lot of different things; I’ve been a dancer and a footballer, but music is my true calling,” he stated.
“I am a brilliant student,” he continued. I want to finish my education. I’m not sure I’d be able to work in an office. I never saw myself working in an office before I discovered music. I always thought I’d compose music and earn money on the streets.”
