I wanted him to become a doctor – Black Sherif’s father speaks
Mr. Kwabena Frimpong, Black Sherif’s father, has spoken about how his son ended up as a musician despite his childhood dream of becoming a doctor.
Speaking from his base in Europe, he expressed his surprise at his son’s success as a musician.
Mr. Kwabena Frimpong stated that he expected his son to become a doctor due to his academic excellence, but when he pursued music, he still supported him.
According to the father, he left Ghana for Europe in 2004 after Black Sherif was born in January 2002, but he still played a father role in his upbringing.
He described how he purchased a desktop computer for him as well as internet packages so that they could communicate frequently via Skype.
