Sensational rising Ghanaian artise, Mohammad Ismalil Sherif, known by the stage name Black Sherif, has released the official video for his song “Oil in My Head” today, June 15.
The Vodafone Ghana Music Awards ’24 Artiste of the Year” spurned breathtaking tracks last year, which brought him from obscurity as a Konongo Zongo boy to the limelight.
His “Oil in My Head” track, which comes off second on his “The Villain I Never Was” album, has been released with over 10,000 views in just over an hour.
The video is a masterpiece by America-based Empire Entertainment and Road Boys Association, the management of the artiste. It features easily relatable visuals that were interwoven with the artiste’s journey from his early days until the time he won the Artiste of the Year award.
