Music Producer, Wei Y3 Oteng Speaking to Akorfa on Simply Showbiz ahead of the VGMA has stated that Black Sherif has done enough within this short period to make himself visible in the mainstream and deserves to scoop some awards at the VGMAs.
“I will not bypass Black Sherif for anything. Because seriously, from nowhere, Black Sherif’s song was like a wildfire being fueled consistently to the point of having a collaboration, which he never initiated.
“You have the First Sermon, which never took it lightly with the people, pierced everybody like a sharp arrow, and then continued with the Second Sermon, which raised the First Sermon’s bar and caught the attention of the international scene and had everybody,” he added.
Oteng added that Black Sherif’s vibrancy on the streets, consistency, and exposure to the international market are the key elements that would make him win the Best New Artiste easily.
“I think Black Sherif I would not pass him for anybody because of the consistency. Even though he missed out on a few things here and there that I don’t want to say, his consistency with the songs has been backed by videos.
“Having the international market come in, and the collaboration with Burna Boy, trust me, I don’t know what will make me pass him for anything. He is my to-go guy. And every soul on the streets can give you word for word,” Wei Y3 Oteng asserted.
