Reggae musician and broadcaster, Blakk Rasta, says there are many musicians in Ghana who have produced better songs than Black Sherif’s “Kwaku The Traveller,” but could not get the needed recognition due to hard luck.
Speaking in an interview on Upside Down on Citi TV, the former Zylofon FM reggae show host said the song’s international success could mean that Black Sherif has a special favour on him.
He, however, advised ‘Blacko’ to explore other styles to show his versatility and brilliance as an artiste.
“I’ve listened to some of his songs, and they sound the same.” he said.
Kwaku the Traveller has recorded over 75 million streams in its first month of release. The song, produced by Joker Nharnah, peaked at Number 1 in both Ghana and Nigeria on the Apple Music Chart.
In the same month, Shazam announced that the song was the most searched song on the app.
It also went #1 on Triller, #1 on Deezer, #1 on Boomplay Hot Trending 100, and also entered Spotify Viral 50 charts with #1 in Sweden, #5 in the UK, #10 on Spotify Global, #2 in Norway, #3 in Denmark, #6 in both Netherlands and Belgium, #9 in France among others.
