Black Sherif has responded to those comparing him to Kinaata.
The comparison between Black Sherif and Kofi Kinaata has already started. To me, a comparison of new school artists to old legends has become a sensitive issue in the Ghanaian music industry.
When a new artiste pops up and starts getting a lot of attention in our music industry, music fanatics start to compare him or her to the legends who have stayed in the music industry for a long.
We have had cases where people were comparing Yaw Tog to Sarkodie after he secured a remix with United Kingdom (UK) based rapper Stormzy on his “Sore” song and hitting a million views on YouTube in 4 days.
Gyakie who is now with Sony Music and the first Ghanaian female artiste to be on Sony Music was compared to Efya after her “Forever” song blown all over the world.
Now, music fanatics have started comparing fast-rising hip hop artist Mohammed Ismail Sherif, better known in the music space as Black Sherif multiple award-winning artiste Martin King Arthur, known as Kofi Kinaata.
Reacting to this comparison, the “second sermon” hitmaker has cautioned Ghanaians to stop the unnecessary comparison and support Ghana music and make the industry a better one for up-and-coming creatives.
people compare artists on this app for their own interests and y’all know that. The focus should be promoting GHANA MUSIC and making the industry a better one for up-and-coming creatives. There’s no sense in setting KILLA up for trolls. Spread love and positivity.
