Ghanaian musician, Black Sherif has been nominated for the best International flow at BET Hip Hop Awards 2022.
The ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ hitmaker becomes the second Ghanaian to be nominated for the category after rapper Sarkodie secured and won the same category in 2019. He shrugged off competition from Falz (Nigeria), Ghetts (U.K.), Kalash (France), Lil Simz (U.K.), Nasty C (South Africa), and Tory Lanez (Canada).
Black Sherif, however, faces stiff competition from other artiste from Africa, Europe, and the Americas this year. The BET Hip Hop Awards 2022 will be aired on September 30, 2022, at Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta.
Meanwhile, Sarkodie is the first Ghanaian to be nominated in the Best International Flow category since its inception. He won the award in 2019.
Born Mohammed Ismail Sherif Kwaku Frimpong, Black Sherif is a Ghanaian musician and performer from Konongo. He gained mainstream acclaim with his street anthem “Second Sermon” released in July 2021. His catchy hooks and choruses have garnered him over 100 million streams on Audiomack, while his music tops charts and is played everywhere from influencer videos on social media to NBA All-Star games.
His March 2022 single “Kwaku the Traveller” reached number 1 on the Ghanaian and Nigerian Apple Music charts, and by August that year was the most Shazamed song in the world across genres.
