Black Sherif reveals the proudest moment of his life


Mohammed Ismail Sherif, also known as Black Sherif, a Ghanaian music phenomenon, has revealed how he braved the obstacles and pursued his passion for music, resulting to his success.

In a recent social media interview, Black Sherif remembered how his mother, who valued education above music, was pleased of him when he won the coveted VGMA Artiste of the Year title, calling it the best moment of his life.


“The proudest moment of my life was when my mom called to congratulate me on the VGMA Artiste of the Year win. My mom was one of those who believed in school and education but I was rather interested in music,” he said.

He stated that he never imagined he could earn a life from music, but he had always known he could sing.

He described how he began rapping in high school and how, after graduation, he decided to take a chance and produce music.

“Never came to my mind that I could make a life out of music, but I always knew I could sing. Like, every community that I’ve been in, I’ve been that guy. I started in high school. That was when I joined the boys who were rapping in class. Starting after high school, making music. I had nothing to lose. I was just risking it left and right,” he said.

He stated that he was constantly seeking to better himself and his music, and that he was in charge of his skill and performance.

“I was just doing everything to make sure the music I did came from the right place. Like every day I wake up and try to be more than who I was. Because that’s the only thing I have control over. People can deny me everything, but my ability to make beautiful songs and performances. I have control over that,” he said.

Black Sherif debuted in 2019 with the song “Cry for Me” and rose to prominence in 2021 with the songs “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon.”

His breakthrough came in March 2022, when his popular tune “Kwaku the Traveller” charted at number one in Ghana and Nigeria on Apple Music.

In October 2022, he released his debut album, The Villain I Never Was, which included songs like “45” and “Soja.”

He has also worked with Sarkodie, Stormzy, Burna Boy, Larry Gaaga, and other artists.

He has performed at a number of events and festivals, including the MOBO Awards, Wireless Festival, and Afronation Miami.

He has received several honors, including Best Hip Hop at the Soundcity MVP honors in 2023.

He is regarded as one of Africa’s most potential and skilled artists.
