Dr Sonnie Badu, a Ghanaian gospel singer and preacher based in the United Kingdom, has praised young rapper Black Sherif following the release of his debut album ‘The Villain I Never Was’ on Thursday.
Dr. Badu, who is captivated by Black Sherif’s pen game, believes the young star embodies the spirit of Jamaica’s iconic reggae singer Bob Marley, who died in 1981.
In a post shared on his social media handle, he wrote: “I think this young man @blacksherif_ is BoB Marley incarnate living in Ghana. His songwriting abilities are just incredible.”
In response to the album, the highly impressed preacher also predicted Black Sherif’s future, predicting that he would become a music titan on the African continent.
Badu added: “This new album solidifies the fact that – he will be one of the Giants of African music. And he will surely win some #Grammys for Ghana .. May God protect you from jealousy, envy, and premature termination as you walk in your giftings…. #DrBadu.”
