There’s a notion out there: Black Sherif has resurrected Sarkodie’s music career after being featured on his ‘Jamz’ Album.

Born Michael Owusu Addo, popularly known as Sarkodie, released a ten-track album in November 2022, which has garnered over 23 million streams on Audiomack and has been performing well on other platforms.

The album includes songs like “Labadi” featuring King Promise, “She Bad” featuring Oxlade, “Confam,” “One Million” feat. Ink Boy, “Cougar” feat. Lojay, “Forever” feat. Kranium, “Over Me” feat. Cina Soul, “Hope Don’t Lie” feat. Joeboy, “Country Side” feat. Black Sherif, and “Better Days” feat. BNXN fka Buju.

The ninth track on the album, “Country Side,” featuring the man of the moment, the current Vodafone Ghana Music Artiste of the Year, Black Sherif, seems to be everyone’s favorite.

The song is everywhere, with audio being played on almost all radio stations in Ghana, and the video being shown on all TV stations nationwide.

“Country Side” by Sarkodie and Black Sherif won the Best Collaboration of the Year at the 24th VGMA’s.

Many think that Sarkodie wouldn’t have achieved this feat if not for Black Sherif.

Responding to such claims on United Showbiz with Mzgee, the “Kwaku the Traveler” hitmaker explained that the album would have achieved even more if he wasn’t featured on it.

Black Sherif earlier revealed that he was the one who contacted Sarkodie to be part of the ‘Jamz’ project.

“When I heard King Sark was about to release an album, I contacted him and pleaded for me to be part of this project with the highest because it was a dream to work with him, and that is how ‘Country Side’ came about,” he recalled.

Black Sherif, also known as Kills Blacko, added that Sarkodie has been in the industry for years, doing great things always, so he shouldn’t be compared to him at all.

“I have just been doing music for four years. If you compare that to Sarkodie’s years spent in the industry, how can you tell me I made his ‘Jamz’ Album a hit? It’s not true,” Blacko fumed.

The “Soja” hitmaker continued that people go on social media with unnecessary rants like this just for engagement, and they shouldn’t be taken seriously.

“In the real world, it’s all love. Even if it’s fake, it’s love. What happens on social media with people commenting always is just for likes since that’s what earns them money. So they can talk, but ‘Jamz’ would have still been ‘Jamz’ if I wasn’t featured on it.” he concluded.
