However, in the of the economic woes, Blacko said netizens usually console themselves by participating in the country’s vibrant nightlife.
He observed, “But then when the sun sets, everyone comes out in a crowd like, yeah, man, we’re outsiddee! So, it’s like there are so many complaints, but from night to dawn we are in the moment.”
According to Black Sherif, he has since faced countless struggles but in spite of everything, he chooses to remain resilient and inspire fans with his experiences.
“I kind of talk for a frustrated figure in the city, a frustrated boy. I’m not from the city, but I live in the city.
I came to chase life and dream there. From love to entertainment to survival. Driving out there, I’m testing my limits,” he added.
He also touched on some of his self-taught skills, such as skating and mastering BMX freestyle within a short period.
“I learned how to skate in 30 minutes. I taught myself BMX freestyle in an hour. I feel like nothing is impossible in this world,” he said.
