Award-winning rapper, Sarkodie, has revealed how break-out act, Black Sherif got onto the tracklist for his upcoming album, Jamz.
Blacko is featured on a song titled ‘Country Side’, the 9th track on the album set for release on Friday.
The album, which Sarkodie describes as every DJ’s best playlist, will be his eighth studio album.
Ahead of the release, the ‘Non-Living Thing’ crooner has explained that he is only moved to collaborate based on conviction and barely reaches out to other artistes to get on his projects.
“If I want to do a song, it is rare that I would think that oh, this boy is the new hottest artiste I want to put him on,” he said.

Black Sherif was an example he cited on Accra-based 3 Music Network on Thursday.
“Big shoutouts to my superstar Blacko. Blacko hit me up last minute of this project, ‘Landlord I have to be on Jamz’. I said, pull up,” he added.
He also admitted that Black Sherif was a heavy influence on that particular song ‘Country Side’ and inspired its direction.
