Black Sherif is the first Ghanaian artist to receive Boomplay Golden Club Plaque

Sensational Ghanaian hip-hop performer Black Sherif is the first artist from that country to reach 100 million streams on Boomplay.

The “Kwaku the Traveller” hitmaker has received a Golden Club award from the dominant African streaming service in honor of this accomplishment.

Sherif responded, “It’s a great deal to me to reach 100 million streams on Boomplay and be the first Ghanaian artist to achieve this on the streaming platform.

Blacko, as he is known, narrated, saying, “As a young child from Konongo, who only had a desire and a voice, this takes me to the realization that I can achieve anything and everything so long as I believe and dare myself to take action. Thank you for this one, Blacko Tribe.

Big love to the Boomplay team for having me on since the beginning, he continued.

The presentation was given by Paul Azumah-Ayitey, Public Relations Manager for Boomplay Ghana, who said, “For a platform that first found Black Sherif as a potential emerging star, Boomplay is thrilled to watch his tremendous success in such a short time.

We are enthusiastic about the journey thus far and believe this will inspire other new and emerging Ghanaian acts to greater heights with Boomplay by their side as an enabler. Boomplay’s Golden Club houses artists who have clocked and surpassed 100M streams.

Blacko joined the Boomplay Golden Club at the 100 million mark, joining artists like Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Diamond Platinumz, Simi, Rayvanny, Fireboy, Omah Lay, Joeboy, and others.

The 20-year-old is also happy to announce that he has received his first Black Entertainment Television (BET) nomination.

Prior to the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards ceremony, which is slated to take place on Friday, September 30, 2022, at Cobb Energy Center in Atlanta, he has been nominated for the BET International Flow award.

Kirani Ayat calls out gov’t as Nana Addo uses his video without his consent

The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) claims that it requested permission before utilizing portions of “Guda” in the “Visit Ghana” ad through a “bespoke creative firm,” to which rapper and singer Kirani Ayat has responded.

The company posted the article on Instagram on September 28.

Kirani Ayat sent a press release to the Authority in response to the announcement.

“I would like to categorically state that NO agency has any RIGHTS whatsoever to my intellectual property,” he said.

The rapper emphasized that he had not granted the group any permission to utilize his video for promotional purposes.

“I, Kirani Ayat, have NOT granted any agency the authority to use my likeness or carry out any work on my behalf.”

The message went on to emphasize that the Ghana Tourism Authority had not disclosed the agency’s identity.

The letter ended by warning the group to disclose the identity of the agency and the signed contracts that formalize the arrangement with the Ghana Tourism Authority.

This comes after rapper Kirani Ayat criticized the government for appropriating parts of his music video, GUDA, without the rapper’s or the music video director, David Nicol-Sey, seeking permission.
