Who is Black Sherif?
Black Sherif is officially known as Mohammed Ismail Sherif, and he is known at home as Kwaku Frimpong which he mentioned in the Second Sermon song.
Apart from his stage name, Black Sherif also goes by the nickname Blacko. He was born on January 9, 2002.
Black Sherif is known to be one of the Kumerica guys making waves in the music industry. But he originally hails from Konongo Zongo.
The rapper had his basic education in Konongo before proceeding to Kumasi Academy for his senior high school education where he completed in 2019. He is currently a student at the University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA).
Black Sherif identifies as a Hip-hop artiste with much concentration on the sub-genre, Trap. He even made the point in his First Sermon that he has been 'trapping' for a long time.
Also, YEN.com.gh reported that Ghanaian actress and presenter, Nana Ama McBrown, posted a video in which she jams to a song by Black Sherif.
The UTV show host publicised the clip flexing her dance moves although she could hardly sing the song verbatim.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that whilst Black Sherif might be the biggest artiste currently in Ghana, it doesn't exempt him from following the rules as a student of the University of Professional Studies, Accra.
A video posted online sees the artiste being reprimanded by the lecturer of the institution who questioned him about what he was wearing.
