Black Sherif honored with Boomplay Gold Club achievement plaque for surpassing 100 million streams

Ghanaian artiste, Black Sherif, has been honored with a Boomplay Gold Club achievement plaque for surpassing 100 million streams on the streamer.

The artiste, who becomes the first Ghanaian musician to reach the milestone on Boomplay, joins top African music stars, including Nigeria’s Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Fireboy DML, Joeboy and Omah Lay, as well as Tanzania’s Diamond Platinumz and Rayvanny who, already, have scored this notable success.

“For a platform that first discovered Black Sherif as a potential rising star, Boomplay is proud to see his phenomenal growth in such a short time,” Boomplay Ghana public relations manager Paul Azumah-Ayitey said. “Boomplay’s Golden Club houses artists who have clocked and surpassed 100M streams. We are excited about the journey thus far and believe this will inspire other new and emerging Ghanaian acts to greater heights with Boomplay at their side as an enabler.”

According to the streamer, the “Kwaku The Traveller” hitmaker will enjoy online and offline promotional support across Boomplay’s operational markets as well as prioritization for his upcoming releases, including his highly anticipated album, as part of Boomplay’s Golden Club member benefits.

“Reaching 100 million streams on Boomplay and being the first Ghanaian artist to achieve this on the streaming platform is a big deal to me,” Black Sherif said. “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 / believe and dare myself to take action. Thank you for this one, Blacko Tribe. Big love to the Boomplay team for putting me on from day one till now.”

Born Mohammed Ismail Sherif, the 20-year-old talented artist released “Money”, “Cry For Me”, and “Destiny” in 2020. Later, he dropped “Money (remix)”, “Adea Kye”, and “Ankonam” which garnered huge buzz on Boomplay across several countries.

The release of “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon” in 2021, ushered him into mainstream limelight. Consequently, Blacko earned a feature from fellow Golden Club member, Burna Boy, for the remix of Second Sermon” to give him further reach across Africa and opened the floodgates for plaudits from prestigious awards and platforms.

Boomplay’s end of year Recap, which highlights stats and insights of music consumption and engagement on the Boomplay platform in 2021 had Blacko emerging as Ghana’s 2nd Most Streamed Artist of the year.
