Ismail Mohammed Sherif Kwaku Frimpong, also known as Black Sherif in the entertainment industry, has revealed what influenced his style of music.
Black Sherif has experienced nothing but success since his emergence into the music industry. He has gained the attention of a lot of music lovers, especially for his back-to-back hit songs which are mostly drilled songs.
In an interview on Asaase Radio in Accra, Black Sherif revealed that the Asakaa Boys from Kumasi made him decide on that path after the popular Kumerica movement.
“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.
Ever since Asakaa boys initiated the genre into the music scenes, it’s made its way to the very top where it proudly belongs to.
Meanwhile, Black Sherif had a successful sold-out concert in London on Friday, November 18, 2022.
Patrons massively locked up all over the place and filled with so much excitement at the concert, the 2021 VGMA ‘New Artist of the Year pulled up a surprise on fans, a double dose of the vibes by bringing on Nigeria’s wavy king, Burna Boy.
The two musicians have recently built a bond and become close pals after Black Sherif made his big breakthrough in the music scene with his hit single, “Second Sermon.”
