Ghanaian singer and songwriter Mohammed Ismail Sherif, professionally known as Black Sherif says Ghanaian should stop comparing artistes and focus on promoting Ghanaian music.
He made the comment after some twitter users started comparing him to Kwesi Arthur and Kofi Kinaata. Some say he is better than Kwesi Arthur and Kofi Kinaata. Some also say Black Sherif should not be compared with Kwesi Arthur and Kofi Kinaata.

This has generated argument between some section of Ghanaians on the twitter app since yesterday.
Below are some of the tweets
If you listen to Black Sherif’s music very well, you’ll realize Kofi Kinaata doesn’t have any talent… it’s just street love and and the tardi fanbase that keeps him going.

Reacting to the issue, Black Sherif took to his Twitter page to say that Ghanaians should stop comparing artistes and focus on promoting Ghanaian music. “People compare artists on this app for their own interests and y’all know that. The focus should be promoting Ghana music and the industry a better one for up and coming creatives. There’s no sense in setting killer up for trolls. Spread love and positivity.”
