One Aspect Of Black Sherif Being Shown To Us By His Producer – Hammer

By Edem Latsu Nukafu

Hammer of the Last Two, a well-known Ghanaian music producer, has suggested that Black Sherif’s music potential is not yet fully exploited.

Hammer is of the opinion that the Kwaku the Traveler hit maker has other aspects that are not yet fully appreciated by music consumers.

Hammer extolled the singer’s music prowess and meteoric growth on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z, saying that if Black Sherif chooses to explore highlife and other afro-infused beats, he would be the talk of many more music lovers.

“Black Sherif has now evolved into something else. But he has other side that people haven’t seen yet and I tell you if people see that side they will run away. All you have heard is Black sing on trap beat. Let him sing on Afro beat, you will run away.

Even when he sang small on a hip hop beat from Sarkodie, the ‘Country Side’, you realise that he sounds different from what he know him to be singing all the time,” he said.

Hammer compared Black Sherif’s relationship with his producer Samsney to the Obrafour and Hammer situation.

At the outset of their music career, Hammer produced music for Obrafour. Initially, Obrafour was only able to produce hip hop tracks, but one day he proposed that he try his voice on highlife music in Appietus.
According to Hammer, that is when he discovered the versatility of Obrafour..

“Obrafour’s knowledge was vast and I was limiting him to my style. So I think Blacko’s producer is showing us one part of him. If Black enters highlife or Afro beat, for real, dem nogo see ein back,” he uttered.

Black Sherif’s emergence onto the music scene in 2019 has led to great successes. His achievements include topping global charts, winning both local and international awards, and performing at some of the biggest stages in the world.

Despite his use of drill beats in most of his compositions, he strongly connects his singing style to highlife music.

He has performed on highlife beats on several occasions. The highlife vibes are present in his verse on DJ Breezy’s ‘Abonton’.

On ‘The Villain I Never Was’ album he also took a foray into reggae on ‘Don’t Forget Me’.

Hammer is certain that the ‘Soja’ singer is capable of more versatility.
