“Black Sherif Does Highlife, He’s Just POWERFULLY Selling It As Hip-Hop” – Akwaboah

Ghanaian musician Akwaboah has voiced his opinion on the genre classification of Black Sherif’s music, stating that the rising star leans more towards highlife than hip-hop. In a recent conversation on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show with Kojo Yankson and Winston Amoah, Akwaboah stated that if Black Sherif’s music was classified as highlife, the genre would gain greater recognition and respect.

Akwaboah argued that Black Sherif’s style of singing and the sound of his music align more with highlife than hip-hop. He suggested that if Black Sherif’s music was categorized as highlife, it would put the genre back on the map and help to preserve it for future generations.

The musician further commented on the negative impact of labeling Black Sherif’s music as hip-hop or Afrobeats, despite its highlife influences. He noted that this labeling is causing Black Sherif to be pushed away from his natural sound and towards more popular genres.

A few days before Akwaboah’s comments, fellow Ghanaian musician Kwabena Kwabena had expressed his frustration with individuals who label Black Sherif’s music as hip-hop. Kwabena argued that Black Sherif’s music is a blend of different genres, with a strong highlife influence, and that labeling it as hip-hop is not accurate.
