Black Sherif and Ajeezay

Sensational rapper Black Sherif, who is currently making waves on social media with his latest Second Sermon song, has shown gratitude to comedian Ajeezay and Accra-based radio station Adom FM for their efforts in pushing his career.

In an interview on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Friday, July 23, 2021, the rapper, whose real name is Mohammed Ismail Sherif Kwaku Frimpong, explained how he journeyed to Accra prior to his appearance on Adom FM.

The First Sermon hitmaker, who hails from Konongo Zongo in the Ashanti Region, said comedian Ajeezay saw his talent after his previous songs became instant hits in his hometown.

He added that, Ajeezay posted some of his videos on his Instagram page and they caught the attention of rapper Yaa Pono (Ponobiom).

The Tema based rapper then urged Ajeezay to invite the Konongo based rapper to Accra, Black Sherif told Andy Dosty.

“Adom was the first radio station I entered when I started doing music…That was when I knew I would be a star…then I went to Pono’s house right after to record the song,” he said.

Talking about his life, Black Sherif said he started music when he enrolled at Kumasi Academy Senior High School.

He added that his father left Ghana when he was in class five and his mum also followed up, hence, he had to live with some of his family members.

When Andy Dosty said it is apt for him to remember people who helped him since others rarely recall, Black Sherif replied, “No matter how small the help was, it puts you somewhere so you have to remember those who helped you up the ladder. They gave you hope regardless.”

The young musician, further, urged Ghanaians to expect his song with Yaa Pono soon as his Second Sermon continues to make waves.

Black Sherif is currently topping the charts on Apple Music Top 100 songs in Ghana with his Second Sermon song. His First Sermon is also clocked at number three.
