Black Sherif hits 100m Streams on Boomplay
Ghanaian Dancehall artist Mohammed Ismail Sheriff Kwaku popularly known as Black Sherif has hit 100M streams on Boomplay, Africa’s most expensive music streaming, and download platform.
This feat has made “Kweku the Traveller” hitmaker become the first Ghanaian artist to reach the 100M streams milestone on Boomplay.

Speaking after this feat, Black Sherif had this to say:
“Reaching 100 million streams on Boomplay in such a short time and being the first Ghanaian artist to achieve this feat is a big deal to me. As a young kid from Konongo, who only had a dream and a voice, this brings me to the realization that I can achieve any and everything so long as I believe and dare myself to take action. Big love to the Boomplay team for putting me on from day one till now,”.
When Black Sherif’s “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon” were released in 2021, they went viral and brought him to the mainstream limelight. A remix of his “Second Sermon” featuring Burna Boy gave him further reach across Africa and beyond.
