When asked what he would have done had he been a failure as a musician, Ghanaian rapper and singer, Black Sherif said that he would have ended up working as a spare parts salesman.
“If my music career hadn’t taken off, I would have been a spare parts salesman,” he said in an interview with Naa Ashorkor on Asaase Radio on Tuesday, April 5.
According to him, it is a successful company in Konongo, which is located in the Ashanti Region, where he is originally from. He went on to say that his father, who resides in Greece, also operates a spare parts company in Konongo, which he described as “a family business.”
This is a successful company in Konongo, which is where I grew up. ‘If it hadn’t been for all that happened, I would have been working with my father, who runs a spare parts store.’
In an interview with Naa Ashorkor, he shared some words of wisdom for aspiring artists, saying, “I don’t believe in imitating others; I always encourage keeping genuine to oneself.” I don’t attempt to be like anyone else. “Throughout my life, I have strived to be the greatest version of myself because I feel there is more to discover about myself.”
“Kwaku The Traveler,” by Black Sherif, has acquired widespread attention in a couple of days on the international music scene. The song has risen to the top of the Apple Music list in Nigeria, where it is now the most popular. It has also made its way into the international billboard chart.
On March 26, he was presented with his first honours at the 3Music Awards in the year 2022.
