Black Sherif, the Ghanaian sensation, has clinched the award for ‘West African Artist of The Year’ at the prestigious Headies Awards 2023.

This remarkable win solidifies his status as a dominant force in West African music, with his unique style and storytelling setting him apart.

The ‘West African Artiste of The Year’ category recognized artists of West African descent who made significant contributions to the continent’s music scene during the year. Black Sherif’s undeniable impact and growing global presence made him the standout choice.

Although he also earned a nomination for ‘African Artiste of The Year,’ ultimately won by Rema, this acknowledgement reinforces his far-reaching influence beyond West Africa.

The Headies Awards 2023, held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, celebrated the rising prominence of African music on the global stage.
