Ghanaian Highlife and Hip-hop sensation, Mohammed Ismail Sherif Frimpong, widely known as Black Sherif, won the Best International Flow Award at the BET Awards.
This triumph marks a redemptive moment for Black Sherif, as he had previously been nominated in the same category during the previous BET Awards but narrowly missed the honour, losing out to Benjamin EPPS from Gabon.
However, he made a remarkable comeback this year, contending for the coveted Best International Flow 2023 title alongside notable artists such as K.O from South Africa, Sampa the Great from Zambia, Major RD from Brazil, Central Cee representing the UK, Ninho from France, Tasha & Tracie from Brazil, AKA from South Africa, Gazo from France, and J Hus from the UK.
Black Sherif’s victory solidifies his place in history as the second Ghanaian artist to secure the Best International Flow Award, following in the footsteps of the renowned rapper Sarkodie, who claimed this accolade during its inaugural year in 2019.
Black Sherif’s rise to global prominence was catalyzed by his electrifying track, “Second Sermon,” which captivated audiences worldwide. He has consistently represented Ghana on the international stage, not only through his musical performances but also with his distinctive fashion sense.
The win has stirred immense excitement among netizens, especially since it marks the second time this prestigious award has found its way to Ghana, reinforcing the country’s growing influence in the global music scene.
