Black Sherif, Madonna

Fast-rising rapper and singer Black Sherif, also known as Blacko premiered his music video for ‘Second Sermon Remix’ featuring Burna Boy, only to be accused of being ungrateful the following week.

The “First Sermon” hit-maker has been involved in allegations of ingratitude, regarding to his former manager, “Snap”, after he fed, clothed and provided the rapper with shelter when he was still an up-and-coming artiste.

In an exclusive interview with Da Don on U Sey Weytin, on Hitz FM, Madonna, Black Sherif’s purported manager, stated that, Snap came in only as an investor after the successful ‘Second Sermon’ hit, and that even the shooting of the remix video with Burna Boy was produced and shot by EMPIRE Entertainment, not by “Snap”.

“Snap came on board as an investor. We started working with him after Second Sermon, and the only we project we released under his support was Second Sermon Remix… and even with that, his investment wasn’t neck-deep into the project. The production of the remix and shooting of the video was funded by EMPIRE.”

“Of course, Snap sorted us out with some few things – he provided us with shelter. He didn’t buy any house for Black Sherif as speculated on social media. It was his house, and we were all living in it including Snap himself and his boys,” Madonna added.

Unfortunately, the manager was later sacked from the house due to a misunderstanding that ensued between Snap and Madonna. The latter noted that the regular Separation of Powers in artiste management was not adhered to by Snap in their case.  He said Snap was overstepping his boundaries when he was managing affairs regarding the young singer.

“Snap suddenly became a Booking Manager – he began to schedule events and interviews for my artiste without my permission. Fast forward, he also made himself the Road Manager for my artiste”

When asked by Da Don whether there was a contract binding Snap and Black Sherif, Madonna confirmed its existence. However, he declined to mention details of what the contract entailed.

“The contract is very sensitive on the management level so I wouldn’t want to discuss it in public,” he declared.

Madonna further refuted claims made by a certain lady on Facebook, that she is the mother of Black Sherif and that no one could kill her ‘son’ because his has been spiritually fortified. When asked by the Da Don if he personally knew Black Sherif‘s mother, he said no. However, he provided information to the effect that Blacko’s parents were living abroad.
