The music video for Black Sherif’s latest smash hit song, ‘Kwaku the Traveller,’ has received varied reviews from music fans on the internet since its release.
Following the release of the music video, critics and music fans have dismissed the notion, whereas others involved in mainstream video and music production have embraced it with open arms.
Top America producer Timbaland has become the latest celebrity to have endorsed the music video and its concept.
The music producer expressed interest in Blacko’s work by posting a snippet of the official video on his Instagram official page with a caption that implied he had already fallen in love with it.
According to Timbaland, the music video has “a vibe,” and it adds to the brand’s international prominence.
In less than 24 hours after its release, the video has already garnered over half a million views. Timbaland’s reaction to Black Sherif’s international appeal is noteworthy.
The “Kwaku Traveler,” landed an enviable spot on the Official Afrobeats Chart Top 20, debuting at No. 2 on the April 17 chart. The hip hop/drill-styled single, which was released in April 2022, enters the chart thanks to consistent gains in radio airplay and streaming.
According to the official chart business, the song climbed to the top 20 based on sales and streams compiled by the curators during a seven-day period. In recent weeks, hip-hop radio stations have hooked onto the song in tandem with the streaming surge.
The Native Magazine explains on “Kwaku The Traveller” that Black Sherif continues on this arc of providing enticing melodies.
