Ghanaian rapper, Black Sherif has reaches 100 million streams on Boomplay, Africa’s most extensive music streaming and download sites.
After a tremendous run since last year, the “Kwaku the Traveller” hitmaker isn’t slowing down as he becomes the first Ghanaian artist to cross the 100 million streams milestone on Boomplay.
Blacko’s impressive feat allows him join Boomplay’s Golden Club, which includesthe likes of Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Diamond Platinumz, Fireboy DML, Joeboy, Omah Lay, and Rayvanny.
“Reaching 100 million streams on Boomplay in such a short time and being the first Ghanaian artist to achieve this feat is a big deal to me. As a young kid from Konongo, who only had a dream and a voice, this brings me to the realisation that I can achieve any and everything so long as I believe and dare myself to take action. Big love to the Boomplay team for putting me on from day one till now,” Black Sherif shared.
it’s been an extraordinary journey with each and everyone of you 💫 ❤️

Meanwhile, Black Sherif has disregarded Blakk Rasta’s assertions that his success is due to a stroke of luck rather than hard labour.
The artist stated that the time and effort he has put into his work should be recognised. He went on to say that when he was younger, he used to listen to Blakk Rasta’s music because his father is a fan of the reggae singer.
“When his Barack Obama song became a hit (in 2008), my father had just returned from Greece, we often listened to it at home.”
Kwaku the Traveller, the song that launched Black Shrerif’s international fame, has surpassed 75 million streaming in its first month. The song, which was produced by Joker Nharnah, reached number one on the Apple Music Charts in both Ghana and Nigeria.
Shazam revealed in the same month that the song was the most sought on the app.
