Ghana’s emerging talent, Black Sherif, has earned a nomination in the “Best International Flow” category at the 2023 BET Hip Hop Awards.
He competes with a global lineup, including AKA (South Africa), Central Cee (UK), Gazo (France), J Hus (UK), K.O (South Africa), Major RD (Brazil), Ninho (France), Sampa The Great (Zambia), and Tasha & Tracie (Brazil).
Black Sherif, whose real name is Mohammed Ismail Sherif Kwaku Frimpong, gained prominence in 2021 with his hit single “First Sermon” and followed it up with “Second Sermon.”
His breakthrough came in March 2022 with “Kwaku the Traveller,” which reached the number one spot on both Ghanaian and Nigerian Apple Music charts.
His debut album, “The Villain I Never Was,” made an impressive entry at number 12 on the Billboard World Albums Chart, a significant achievement for the emerging artist.
This BET Hip Hop Award nomination adds to Black Sherif’s growing list of accolades, including the VGMA Artiste of the Year award, the 2023 BET Viewers’ Choice Award for Best New International Act, and the 2023 Headies Award for West African Artiste of the Year.
His consistent ascent in the music industry has not only solidified his status as one of Ghana’s most promising talents but has also extended his recognition on the international stage.
