Ghanaian musician, Black Sherif’s ‘Kwaku The Traveller has become a monster hit in Nigeria 5 days after its release.
In a new video, Pocolee the popular Nigerian dancer, with millions of followers on social media, couldn’t help but go crazy over the song.
On top of his voice, Pocolee shook out the new song’s lyrics with such a lot of fervor and energy at a birthday celebration that it became contagious to all those around who equally jammed to the chart-topping track.
‘Kwaku The Traveller’ is currently the number one most streamed song on Nigerian music. This makes Black Sherif the first Ghanaian artiste to land on top of the Nigerian music chart with a solo track.
This becomes a historic feat that no Ghanaian musician has achieved in recent times, especially when Ghanaian music industry stakeholders have been keen to see Ghanaian songs penetrate the Nigerian music scene.
Often, it is Nigerian songs that are always dominating music charts in Ghana but Black Sherif has proved that the tables can change if the right strings are pulled.
Acknowledging his feat in Nigeria, Black Sherif shared a screenshot of the Nigeria Apple Music chart and wrote “NUMBER 1 in NAIJJJ! LOVE YOU SO MUCH CHALE❤️. KEEP STREAMING #KTT”.

Black Sherif is not new to the Nigerian music market. His ‘Second Sermon’ monster hit track has also been a popular tune in the West African country which he visited some few months ago for shows and media tours.
The song attracted wild attention after Burna Boy also hopped on the remix. ‘Second Sermon’ has set Black Sherif on a good path as his breakthrough song and he is continuing the journey with ‘Kwaku The Traveller’.
‘Kwaku The Traveller’ also debuted on Apple’s Global Music Chart at number 76 yesterday. However, checks by pulse.com.gh show that the song is climbing higher on the chart as it is now on the 73rd spot.
