Black Sherif's Dominance Is Calculated - Music Expert Chris Tsormanah Lauds Blacko
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Chris Tsormanah, a music executive and servant at Nsawam Connect gave his insight on Black Sherif's massive international appeal and his continued success both locally and internationally.
The renowned and well-respected music critic and analyst pointed out that Black Sherif's success was a calculated effort from the artiste himself and his formidable team.
A lot of factors have contributed to his success. First of all, he is good, unique and talented. We all know what Black Sherif has done with his First Sermon and Second Sermon songs. So he is one major factor. Another is the team around him. Black Sherif as an artiste has a product one can easily sell and his team are going that extra mile to export that talent and that product he has to offer. He said
International Gigs Are An Important Aspect Of Music
Chris broke down the Live and Recording aspects of music. He explained that the Live industry involved concerts, shows, tours and revenue generated from them. While the recording industry had to do with streams, YouTube views, royalties and the digital aspect of music. He mentioned that it was important for a star like Black Sherif to tap into the Live side of his craft and noted that being on a platform like the Wireless Festival was a big deal. He said:
You can dominate in the recording industry but you need the Live Industry to cement your dominance, especially in this digital era where numbers are being manipulated. You would never know how your brand is performing on the ground and till you pay attention to the Live aspect of your brand, you would never know. Globally the live industry generates 50% more revenue than the recording aspect of the industry. It tells you how important it is for every top star to focus on that.
