“I’m a huge fan of Black Sherif right now. I think it may be because he just reminded me of my energy of myself when I came out. I remember the first record, bro.

“I was in New York City when a friend of mine called Baako from Mali played me the song and I said yo who the F is that? You can hear in his voice, you can feel the pain, the struggle, you hear the challenges and you can just hear a ghetto kid wanting to get out.

“It’s the way he says it, you know is real, it’s nothing that’s fabricated and if no major label picks him up, they need to get to him before I do,” Akon is quoted to have said on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

In response, Blacko who recently spoke to Graphic Showbiz said he is humbled by the kind words from the two American greats.

“Such comments will urge me to do more. I have received such comments from superstars like Snoop Dogg but I am not allowing all that to get to my head.
