At the 16th Headies Awards in 2023, Ghanaian superstar Black Sherif was named the “West African Artiste of the Year.”

His distinct style and storytelling distinguish him, and this incredible victory further cemented his position as the leading force in West African music.

The musician defeated competitors from the West African region, including fellow citizens Camidoh and Gyakie.

Afrobeats artists Ayra Starr, Asake, Rema, Victony, KCee, Oxlade, Johnny Drille, Blaqbonez, Spyro, Seyi Vibez, and FireBoyDML performed at the 16th Headies Awards.

The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta hosted the 2023 Headies Awards, which honored African music’s increasing popularity around the world.

“Thank you so much to the fans, to the listeners. Thank you Headies, thank you Nigeria Thank you Ghana, thank you Konongo Zongo, I love you,” Black Sherif said.
