Ghanaian music sensation, Mohammed Ismail Sherif Frimpong, popularly known as Black Sherif, clinched the highly coveted Best International Flow Award at the prestigious BET Awards.
This triumph represents a redemption story for Black Sherif, who had previously been nominated in the same category at the previous BET Awards but narrowly missed the honor, losing to Benjamin EPPS from Gabon. However, he made a spectacular comeback this year, competing for the sought-after Best International Flow 2023 title alongside renowned artists like 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 accelerated by his electrifying track, “Second Sermon,” which resonated with 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 sparked tremendous excitement among netizens, especially as it signifies the second time this prestigious award has graced Ghana, reaffirming the country’s growing influence in the global music scene.
