“My Future Is Rich In Artistry” – Black Sheriff



Sounding excited about his steady progress in the Ghanaian music industry, award-winning Ghanaian Afrobeats singer, Black Sherif, says fans should expect more amazing and heart-warming songs from his label in the coming years.

He stated that his future is “rich in artistry” as different gates of ideas keep popping up “sonically and visually” in this head.

Speaking to CNN’s Larry Modowo in a recent interview on the African Voices Programme, the young Ghanaian musician indicated that he chose to steer clear off other interests to focus solely on his music career after completing high school.

“I was building interests in so many things, growing up I had interest in playing football, I dashed them all away. I just knew right after high school I’m going hundred percent (into music) so after high school, 4th June 2019, I started making music heavily,” Blacko recalled.

Describing the identity of his songs as modern highlife fused with reggae influences, Black Sheriff explained that his parents’ love for music contributed to his ability to put together resounding lyrics and rhythms.

“The first time I met my dad, he put me on reggae and that feeling was different. My mother loves Alpha Blondy and Adane Best so that built my taste and interest in music,” he revealed.

The iconic Afrobeat musician who released his debut album “The Villain I Never Was,” last year, stated he decided go “solo” on that particular music project simply because he had a lot of things to talk about.

Having attracted massive following and collaborations with other musicians including Sakordie on the song “Country Side,” the 21-year-old singer, however, expressed utmost astonishment at his global influence over the past few years.

The Frimpong King crooner admitted that his swift claim to fame was overwhelming, nonetheless, he stated that he is the leading actor in his life so he tries to do what’s best for himself.

“My feelings are my art. When I am crying I make music when I am happy I make music when I am confused, I make music,” he stated, adding that life experiences moulded his mindset and the type of music he makes and releases.
