Renowned Ghanaian artiste, Black Sherif, has once again been honored with a prestigious award from Boomplay, Africa's leading music streaming and download platform. This recognition comes as a result of Black Sherif's exceptional achievement of accumulating an impressive total stream count for his entire music collection and a remarkable milestone for his debut album.



In February of 2023, Black Sherif's music collection on Boomplay achieved an impressive milestone of 300 million total streams. More recently, his debut album titled The Villain I Never Was (TVINW) also reached an extraordinary feat by amassing 300 million streams. This accomplishment firmly establishes Black Sherif as the most streamed Ghanaian artist on Boomplay and elevates TVINW to the position of the most streamed Ghanaian album on the platform.



During the award presentation ceremony, Black Sherif was presented with the plaque by Oliver Ameyedowo, the Artist Relations Manager at Boomplay Ghana. Reflecting on his journey, Black Sherif expressed his gratitude for his fans' unwavering support and his humble beginnings as a music enthusiast who aspired to share his personal story through his art.



Black Sherif humbly acknowledged the collective effort that led to his music's remarkable 300 million+ streams in just a few years. He conveyed deep appreciation for his fans' energy, support, and streaming activity. From a point of creating music without knowing its potential, he has now achieved accolades and received recognition that has left him astounded. Black Sherif extended his heartfelt thanks to his fans for standing by him and embracing the music he creates. He also expressed gratitude to Boomplay for their consistent support throughout his journey.



Paul Azumah-Ayitey, the Communications and Public Relations Manager for Africa at Boomplay, praised Black Sherif's rise in the music industry and highlighted Boomplay's dedication to nurturing African artists and the music ecosystem. He commended Black Sherif's meteoric ascent as a testament to his immense talent and potential. Boomplay remains committed to providing a platform that empowers African artists to reach their full potential and expand their audience, while also celebrating each significant milestone achieved along their artistic journey.




Black Sherif, born Mohammed Ismail Sherif, a 21-year-old prodigious artist, gained widespread recognition with his viral hit First Sermon, which propelled him into the mainstream music scene. With a string of successful singles like Second Sermon (including a remix featuring Burna Boy), Kwaku the Traveller, and Soja, Black Sherif's musical career has soared to new heights. His debut album, The Villain I Never Was, released on October 6, 2022, received critical acclaim and solidified his reputation as a rising star.



Having broken multiple records and earned various awards, including the prestigious Artist of the Year at the 2023 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Black Sherif continues to make significant strides. Anticipating the release of his sophomore album later this year, he has also announced a two-song EP titled Take Care of Yourself, Blacko, scheduled for release on August 10, 2023.
