Award-winning gospel musician, Sonnie Badu, says Black Sherif’s big win at the 2023 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was in the best interest of the music industry.
The ‘Enojare’ hitmaker said even though Black Sherif’s main competitor in the Artiste of the Year category, Piesie Esther, did exceptionally well in the year under review, the former is in a better position to represent Ghana on the international stage.
“Piesie did excellent but it was good Black Sherif won it. Black Sherif just received an award in the US and that is what Ghana wants,” he said in an interview with DJ Slim on Daybreak Hitz.
He added that the 2023 BET Best International Flow recipient should be supported by the entire music industry so he can heavily represent Ghana on the international stage.
If I was part of the Entertainment fraternity, I would let everybody project that guy because that is what the Nigerians do. Blacko has everything it takes to take Ghana international.”
“We have to be deliberate. If I was the entertainment minister, I would look out for this guy and project him in this season. It’s a Ghana agenda, not an individualistic agenda.”
Ghana’s Black Sherif has been projected to win the Best International Flow award at the BET Hiphop Awards 2023.
This comes as pre-recorded snippets that leaked online on Wednesday morning suggested that the ‘Kwaku the Traveler’ hitmaker was on stage in the US to pick up the award.
This leaked amateur video was from the show’s taping from the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.
