Black Sherif shakes Akufo-Addo's hand, fans think he was rude
Black Sherif had the opportunity to meet President Nana Akufo-Addo at the event. The Soja singer and the president shook hands at a recent occasion in the Burma Camp.
The handshake moment with Akufo-Addo sparked mixed reactions among Ghanaians. For some of the people, Black Sherif did not show good etiquette and was 'rude' towards the president.
The critics found Black Sherif's failure to remove his cap and curtsy offensive to the country's culture and customs. Also, the fact that Black Sherif kept on singing a section of his song irked some people who found extremely it rude and disrespectful since it made light of smoking cigarettes.
However, many others defended Black Sherif by arguing it was just part of the antics of his haters to tarnish his image. The supporters stated that the young artiste might have forgotten about the cap since he was in the mood singing and cheering everyone around.
Also, for whichever song he was singing, it was also part of the reason why he was called so it’s not disrespectful to sing your own song. It could have caused more controversy if he had stopped singing.
