Mohammed Ismail Sherif Kwaku Frimpong, better known as Black Sherif in the showbiz world, has discussed the musical influences that helped shape his sound.
Since breaking into the music business, Black Sherif has only encountered success. Many music enthusiasts have taken notice of him, particularly as a result of his back-to-back hits, the majority of which are drilled songs.
“I would give all the credit to the Asakaa Boys because they really made drill popular all over Africa and even in Kenya they are now doing drill songs,” he said.
“I fell in love with drill music after listening to the Asakaa Boys so I would say that they influenced what I’m doing because it had some energy and vibe in there which got my attention,” Black Sherif told the host in a virtual interview from London.
The genre has risen to the top, where it rightly belongs since Asakaa Boys introduced it to the music scenes.
On Friday, November 18, 2022, Black Sherif performed in London at a packed house. The 2021 VGMA ‘New Artist of the Year’ pulled a surprise on fans, a double dosage of the vibrations by bringing on Nigeria’s wavy king, Burna Boy. Fans were hugely locked up everywhere and filled with such enthusiasm at the show.
After Black Sherif achieved his major breakthrough in the music industry with his smash hit tune, “Second Sermon,” the two musicians have recently forged a friendship and become close friends.
