Black Sherif, also popularly known as Killa Blacko, is a 19-year-old gentleman who rose to fame weeks ago with his first and second sermons that have now become hit songs.
As YEN.com.gh recently reported, it was on Abeiku Santana's show that many Ghanaians got to hear of the musician, who soon after won many hearts.
On the show, Abeiku Santana indicated that after listening to the young talent's music, he would not be surprised if he manages to enter into mainstream music and give the veterans a run for their monies.
