Black Sherif Early life, School, And Educational Background

Most musicians start out in poverty, and Blacko is no exception. He began at the bottom and worked his way up until he reached the top, where he should stay for a while. His Islamic hometown of Konongo-Zongo in Ghana’s Ashanti Region is where he was born and raised. Ashanti, Ghana is home to the gold bar and manganese mining community of Konongo (also known as Konongo-Odumase). The town serves as the seat of the Asante Akim Central Municipal and is also the hometown of well-known figures like percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah and Ghanaian football legend Sulley Muntari. Black Sherif, who was 10 years old, was raised by his aunt and other members of his extended family because both of his parents were stationed abroad. His roving life exposed him to numerous influences and different cultures at a very early age.
