Black Sherif’s new single Kwaku the Traveller sits comfortably at Number 1 on Apple Music Nigeria.

A massive feat for the Ghanaian industry as this is the first time a piece of Ghanaian music without international features has caught the hearts of the biggest musical population in Africa. Upending Asake and Burna Boy’s Sungba, including Pheelz and BNXN fka Buju’s Finesse.

Blacko dropped Kwaku the Traveller on Thursday, and within four days, this new anthem has climbed to the throne of the self-recognized African Gaint (Nigeria). The song details the trials and woes of life’s journey. Mistakes and victories that one journeys through. And the relentless grit that fuels perseverance.

This is arguably one of the breakout star’s most emotional songs yet. Black Sherif’s newest work, ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ is the story about a young man struggling to make a life for himself.

On this path, which he has eventually come to accept, a lot of sacrifices and life-altering decisions seem to have been made. This is apparent in the opening lines of the song where the 20-year-old admits that he is not without blemishes and prone to mistakes.

Considering the gravity of some of these moves Blacko makes during this ordeal and the criticisms thereof, he is asking who is without sin to cast the first stone, like Jesus asked the Pharisees who accused a woman of sexual infidelity in John 8:7. Of course I f#*ked up, who never fucked up hands in the air, no hands?”
