While commenting on the massive achievement, Starr FM's Caleb Boye patted Black Sherif on the back and had some words of encouragement for him.
The Starr FM radio show host said Black Sherif had to solidify himself in the music industry so he could stay relevant for years.
"I think Black Sherif must maintain the aggressive style. It is enviable. It is marketable. It will catch global attention.
Also, I think he should pay critical attention to his production. The sounds I mean. Once the brand starts growing we must see a change in sound quality so it meets the standard.
Also, he must have a dedicated team to do his bidding. Not errand boys," Caleb Boye noted.
Speaking about musicians, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that silky-voiced Ghanaian singer, Christie Quincyna Quarcoopome, famed as Cina Soul, has said that it should not come as a surprise to people if she gets married to fellow singer, Kidi.
While speaking in an interview with Ola Michaels on Accra-based Okay FM, Cina Soul indicated that she had known Kidi way back during their university days.
According to her, Kidi has been very instrumental in her music career and they have a very strong friendship.
