Black Sherif has requested that his followers refrain from comparing his career to that of more established artists like Stonebwoy and Sarkodie.
After the debut of the new talent on the music scene, Twitter has always been abuzz with netizens’ opinions.
‘Kweku The Traveller,’ the teen’s most recent street jam, which has become a global viral phenomenon, has been lauded by a number of critics.
Consequently, some Internet users have equated the success of the young artist to that of certain seasoned performers.
Some claim that ‘Blacko,’ as he is affectionately known by many, has accomplished what A-List singers such as Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, and Lumba could not.
As the rapper topped the Apple Music list in Nigeria, the comparisons between them intensified.
Black Sherif, commenting on the responses of netizens, deems it rude and unnecessary to compare his career to that of the seniors.
“This behavior is impolite and unnecessary. People who truly love me do not behave in this manner. These are all for retweets, likes, and responses. During an interview on Ghanaweb’s Talkertainent broadcast, he declared, “I don’t believe in such arguments.”
The rapper stated that he wishes not to be classified as certain Internet users are doing.
“I don’t believe in classifications. I’m not sure why, but I do not believe in classifying artists. Each individual is distinctive in his own way. These are mental constructs,” he explained.
