Black Sherif has scored a historic 50 million streams for his crossover “Kwaku The Traveller” on Boomplay.
The musician becomes the first Ghana act to achieve this feat for a single song, barely two months after setting the record as the first Ghana act to join the streamer’s Golden Club with over 100 million streams earlier this summer.
Black gained mainstream recognition after the release of “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon” singles in 2021, which went viral. A remix of his “Second Sermon” featuring Burna Boy gave him further reach across Africa and beyond. Prior to that, he earned online traction with his singles “Money”, “Cry For Me”, and “Destiny” which were released in 2020. Later, he dropped “Money (remix)”, “Adea Kye”, and “Ankonam” which garnered huge buzz on Boomplay across several countries.
Consequently, Blacko emerged as Ghana’s 2nd Most Streamed Artist of 2021 and his “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon” were the 1st and 2nd Most Streamed Songs of 2021 in Ghana during Boomplay’s Recap 2021.
Meanwhile, Black Sherif has been announced as Audiomack UP NOW artiste for August. He will be featured on the cover of Audiomack’s prestigious #UpNow playlist and will receive amplification across the platform’s channels with specialized marketing, editorial, social support, playlisting, custom videos, and more.
