I went to class like 8 times during my time at UPSA – Black Sherif



, the VGMA Artiste of the Year, who recently played at the 2023 Wireless Festival in the United Kingdom, startled fans with a startling revelation regarding his time at university.

Born Mohammed Ismail Sherrif, the 21-year-old has stirred a debate on the worth of a university education for artists in a recent interview uploaded on Twitter.

On the sidelines of the festival, a blogger in the UK interviewed the ‘Kweku The Traveller' singer about his experience studying marketing in his first year at university in the video.

The blogger quizzed, “We are glad you quit school to pursue music. Thank you for that. You studied marketing in your first year at the university. I want to know something. For that one year studying Marketing, did you learn anything that you can tell me about Marketing?”

Blacko responding to the question revealed that he only attended class a few times. “Nah, I went to class like eight times, I played Fifa as well” he shared.

His comments quickly took social media by storm with most fans divided over his revelation. Whiles some fans believed he did not see value in his education and criticized his actions others also hailed his actions.

A fan tweeted, “B L A C K O to the whole WIASE”

enrolled in the University of Professional Studies, Accra in 2021 after his high school education.

Black Sherif's situation is not unusual; numerous Ghanaian musicians have also dropped out of school. Mzvee, Stonebwoy, and D-Black are among others who have struggled to manage academics and their music careers.

Many musicians and artists find it difficult to find relevance in their coursework, particularly when they are still exploring their hobbies and passions.

This begs the question of whether Ghanaian colleges are doing enough to engage students and provide them with the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in their chosen industries.

Others, such as Samini, Stonebwoy, and Becca, have also defied the hurdles to achieve their educational objectives.

However, he is said to have ditched his education in pursuit of a blooming career that same year.
