Speaking in an interview with Jay Foley 3TV, Kwabena Kwabena maintained that there’s nothing remotely hip-hop-related about Black Sherif.
Black Sherif is a highlife musician, and the sound and rhythm he incorporates into his songs are highlife sounds therefore, why is he referred to as a hip-hop musician? The 8th generation of highlife musicians is beginning with Black Sheriff.
It’s time to refer to Black Sherif as a highlife performer, says the Kwabena Kwabena, because there is nothing remotely hip-hop-related about him.
“We are labeling Black Sheriff as a hip-hop artist, but I don’t see him as a hip-hop musician at all,” he said in further explanation. How then do we name him a hip-hop artist if you listen to his music and everything he’s done with it?
