How Black Sherif intends to develop his hometown using his music



Speaking on the Onua Showtime with McBrown on November 11, 2023, Black Sherif stated that the development of every society begins with the transformation of the mentality of its people, especially the youth before any other projects.

“We plan to elevate Konogo. It’s the mindset I need to change first. If their minds are changed, it will be easy to develop the place. Especially the mindset of the young ones.

“I believe that I can use my story to motivate the young ones who think that they can’t achieve anything based on their backgrounds. So it’s about the mindsets of the people first, especially the youth,” he added.

Black Sherif added that this mindset change would be made possible through his story, his music, and a series of “seminars, art, music, and workshops” to inspire and motivate the youth.

He argued that his plan is part of a lifelong dream of his, stating, “This is a childhood dream; this isn’t something I’m saying because I have to say, I want to put the people first before other plans roll out.”
