His breakthrough came in March 2022 when he released the smash song “Kwaku the Traveller,” which peaked at number one on the Apple Music charts in Nigeria and Ghana. On October 5, 2022, he then published his debut album, The Villain I Never Was.

In Ghana’s Ashanti Region, Black Sherif was born and reared in Konongo-Zongo.

Sherif completed his elementary education at Konongo Zongo Islamic Basic School before graduating from junior high school at Pinamang Educational Complex.

After completing his secondary school at Kumasi Academy, he became interested in music and dance and joined the Students Representative Council’s (SRC) Literary Group (LG).

A new topic called Creative Arts and Design has been added to the Common Core Programme (CCP) for Ghanaian children’s education. The topic is a complex field that is interdisciplinary as well as multidisciplinary.

The topic is divided into four main academic areas: drama, dance, music, visual arts, and design.

The study of creative arts and design gives students the chance to develop their mental concentration, self-express, manage and lessen stress, and utilise their hands deftly to create (physical dexterity), control and lessen stress, and find fulfilment and delight on a personal level.
