Ghanaian musical sensation Black Sherif has not only topped multiple music charts with his new single “Kilos Milos” but has also sparked a fashion trend with the performance video that accompanies the track. For two consecutive weeks, Black Sherif has maintained the No. 1 position on Apple Music, Boomplay, Audiomack, and YouTube in Ghana, demonstrating his unparalleled popularity.

“Kilos Milos” debuted at number one within 24 hours of its release, sweeping through Ghanaian music charts and making significant inroads into other African charts. The track’s success is bolstered by the viral video, which features Black Sherif in a striking CUNNINGZ armoured-corseted rebel costume. This fusion of fashion and music has captured the imagination of fans and fashion enthusiasts alike, solidifying Black Sherif’s status as a trendsetter beyond his musical achievements.

Known for his innovative blend of Afrobeat and Hip Hop, Black Sherif continues to captivate audiences with his raw and emotive lyricism. “Kilos Milos” showcases his versatility, with powerful verses over a captivating production by Kwame Agger and Joker Nharnah. This follows the success of his street anthem, “Shut Up,” and builds anticipation for his forthcoming sophomore album, due later this year.

Recently awarded Best Hip-Hop and Hip-Life Artiste at the 25th Telecel Ghana Music Awards, Black Sherif has also headlined Afrofuture, one of Africa’s largest music festivals. His global impact is undeniable, as he was named the second most streamed artist worldwide on Audiomack in 2023.

Born Mohammed Ismail Sharif Kwaku Frimpong in Konongo, a small town in Ghana’s Ashanti Region, Black Sherif has risen to become the country’s biggest star. He bridges the gap between Afrobeats, highlife, and Ghanaian drill, showcasing his storytelling prowess and linguistic dexterity.
