Musician Black Sherriff has released the much-anticipated remix of his hit single ‘Second Sermon’, which features Nigerian Afrobeat singer Burna Boy.
Even though fans were excited about Black Sherif’s giant leap, the remix was greeted with controversies concerning Burna Boy’s verse.
The ‘African Giant’ hitmaker hinted at a possible collaboration by dropping a verse on his Instagram story in October.

According to many, his verse was not impressive enough.
In an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, Black Sherrif said getting Burna Boy on his song is a huge achievement for him, and he is very grateful to the Nigerian Superstar.
“This is big for me as we all know about Grammy award-winning Burna Boy. He is big and has a huge following, so when he said he likes the song, the rest is what nature wanted to happen,” Black Sherif explained.
He also mentioned that he loves Burna Boy’s verse despite being criticised by many.
“It is an art, and I love the verse so much. I this it’s because some of the original lyrics of the songs were taken out that’s why people are not pleased.”
Black Sherriff also mentioned that his fans should anticipate a music video for the remix soon.
The Second Sermon remix was released on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, to a resounding reception from fans in both Ghana and Nigeria.
The trap song, which received a massive welcome by music lovers both home and abroad, was the second official piece from the camp of Black Sherif off his yet-to-be-released tape, according to Road Boys Association (RBA).
Burna Boy’s feature makes Blacko’s biggest collaboration yet since breaking through the music scene.
Meanwhile, Black Sherif is scheduled to host a concert later this year, dubbed ‘Mozama Disco’, to climax what has been a phenomenal 12 months for the Konongo-born superstar.
