Some Ghanaian artistes have taken the lead in congratulating Mohammed Ismail Sherif, popularly known as Black Sherif, on his first Black Entertainment Television (BET) Award this year.
The “Soja” composer won the Best International Flow category at the 2023 Hip Hop Awards.
He topped his nine contenders in the category including Gazo (France), Central Cee (UK), J Hus (UK), Major Rd (Brazil), Ninho (France), Tasha & Tracie (Brazil), the late Aka & K.O (South Africa), and Sampa The Great (Zimbabwe).
Following this, artistes including Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale have applauded his feat publicly.
They both took to their respective Twitter pages to congratulate the “Kwaku the traveler” hit-maker.
“Congratulations 🎊 @blacksherif_#BET Best international flow 🚀,” Stonebwoy posted.
Shatta Wale, on the other hand, said, “Chale let’s say congrats to blacko he is a cobra 😂😂🙌🙌🙏🙏”
The singer and rapper was nominated for the same category last year but lost to French national Benjamin Epps.
He becomes the third Ghanaian to win a BET award after Stonebwoy and Sarkodie.
In 2015, Ghana’s first BET Award came when Stonebwoy won the Best International Flow category.
It was followed by Sarkodie’s win of Best International Act in 2019.
Meanwhile, Ghanaians, including Kojo Antwi, Hiplife duo R2Bees, rapper D-Black, Camidoh, MzVee, rapper Kwesi Arthur, and Fuse ODG, have all received nominations at various times.
