Born Mohammed Ismail Sherif, the 20-year-old talented artist released Money, Cry For Me and Destiny in 2020. He later released “Money (Remix)”, “Adea Kye” and “Ankonam” which caused a huge hit on Boomplay in many countries. With the release of “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon” in 2021, Blacko went viral and immediately got the spotlight across Africa.

As a result, Blacko received an appeal from fellow Golden Club member Burna Boy for the remix of “Second Sermon” to give him greater reach across Africa and open the floodgates to accolades from prestigious awards and platforms.

Boomplay’s year under review, which highlights statistics and insights into music consumption and engagement on the Boomplay platform in 2021, saw Blacko emerge as the second most streamed artist of the year in Ghana. His “First Sermon” and “Second Sermon” were the 1st and 2nd most streamed songs of 2021 in Ghana.
