Award-winning Ghanaian music star, Black Sherif has been named as one of the young acts in the 2022 list of YouTube’s Foundry Class.
The Class of 2022 is Foundry’s biggest class to date, featuring 30 talents spanning genres and continents.

Black Sherif‘s inclusion in the list does not come as a surprise at all considering the amount of work and energy he has put into his craft in the last few months.
The release of his last single, ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ is evidence enough that Blacko is currently on a roller coaster.
