Ghanaian artist, Black Sherif is driving social media crazy upon the release of his latest EP titled, ‘Take Care Of Yourself’ which has left fans buzzing over his talent and style.
The tracks, produced by his two in-house collaborators, Samsney and Joker Nharnah, were teased to fans during his acceptance speech for “Artiste of the Year” at the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in Accra.
The project showcases the development of the 21-year-old award-winning singer as he overcomes challenges faced on the tough streets of fame while remaining loyal to himself.
The EP which was released on Thursday, August 10, 2023, is made up of two impressive tracks, ‘YAYA’ and ‘Simmer Down’ that highlight the Ghanaian artiste’s sensational musical qualities, having none of the songs being featured.
While “YAYA” follows the lens of his alter ego, a rebel who gave fate a chance and is in search of healing, “Simmer Down” is a highlife, soul and drilled infused anthem about keeping a winning mentality and practicing patience to downplay opposition.
Just like ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ and ‘Soja’, ‘Take Care of Yourself’, Blacko’s EP has become an instant hit as fans are excited and rated it as another masterpiece.
Moving on, some social media users opined that:
“There’s a certain magic to his craft. His storytelling reaches its pinnacle, instantly striking a chord when you stumble upon it.
