Black Sherif, a singer from Ghana, has come under fire for failing to meet President Akufo-Addo with traditional decorum.
The “Soja” hitmaker had the chance to shake hands with the president during a gathering in the Burma Camp.
Many people feel that Black Sherif’s failure to properly remove his cap or bow was in violation of Ghanaian culture and welcome traditions.
As a result, he has been slammed for not taking off his cap to show respect to the first gentleman of the land.
Apart from that, Black Sherif did not stop singing a verse of his song, which many found quite offensive and disrespectful—a part of the song that has to do with smoking cigarettes.
Kobby Found wrote: “Black Sherif couldn’t even take off his hat before greeting the first man of our land.” He blew up, and all that humble sh*t went out the window.
