Award-winning hip-hop recording artist, Black Sherif has addressed rumors that he advocated for outlawing foreign music in Ghana.

The composer of “Oil on My Head” claims that he never said anything like that.

In a post on his X page, he wrote, “I don’t know where in my speech that says ban foreign music. How crazy can you spin a message that says love your culture and try play local music to your visitors if you wanna see your country creatives break boundaries. How do I want foreign music ban in my country while I work with foreign producers and Artistes? But agenda set ah lie? Good luck to everybody.”

His statement comes after he gave a speech at the launch of #PlayGhana initiative ceremony that came off days ago.

The initiative, organized by some industry stakeholders and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, in collaboration with the Creative Arts Agency, seeks to promote Ghanaian music nationwide, especially during the Christmas season when there is an influx of diasporas spending their holidays in the country.

At the launch, Blacko, as he is popularly called, said these words: “The initiative was a step in the right direction for Ghanaian music and culture and urged everyone to support it.”
