To celebrate his birthday, Ghanaian artist Black Sherif has delivered his first single of the year, ‘January 9th’. The track has been accompanied by a slick music video directed by David Nicol-Sey, who was also responsible for Sherif’s iconic ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ video in 2022 which recorded over 24 million views.

Sherif released his debut album back in 2022, with fans hoping for his follow up this year. The artist manages to combine an array of influences, including Afrobeat, Highlife, and Drill within his music.

Speaking on the latest track, the artist states:

“The number nine has become so significant to me ever since I got to know my birthday. I have fully grasped its meaning and share in the strongest conviction that the number 9 is my luckiest manifestation’’
