Despite the overwhelming success of his recent chart-topping Kwaku the Traveller, the Black Sherif claims there is no pressure from his fans to record another song.
Since the release of his second song, “Kwaku the Traveler,” Black Sherif has been making waves. His song made it to the worldwide market just a few days after it was launched in Ghana.
The young Ghanaian talent, who hails from Konogo Zongo in the Ashanti Region, seems to be dominating the music scene from time to time even though he has only been in the industry for a short time.
A few days after topping the chart on Apple Music, he hit another milestone by becoming the only Ghanaian in Audiomack’s top 5 most-streamed hip-hop artists of the week.
With all of these achievements, some musicians may feel pressured to stay relevant, but Black Sherif recently told Graphic Showbiz that he feels no such pressure.
“There is zero pressure on me. I enjoy exploring my reality through the stories I preach through music while studying the game to perfect my craft. When you love what you do, you do it with ease. I release songs whenever I want and it is always fire when I drop a song,” he said.
Some musicians fade away after a year or two, but Black Sherif stated that he plans to stay for a long period.
“Black Sherif is a brand for all. My fans are the foundation for this brand and the onus is on me to work hard to put out great music to entertain everyone who loves my music. As earlier mentioned, this is just the beginning. We will bear witness to a beautiful musical journey.”
“Music is what gives me joy and I will never lose sight of my first love. I give my all to the music and I believe that is the reflection in the feedback I get from the fans and music lovers across the globe.”
His primary priority as an artist, he claims, is to compose music, and that’s all he’s doing right now.
Black Sherif, when asked about the controversies and criticism that have surrounded him, indicated that he has delegated legal matters to his attorneys.
