Sherifa Gunu, Ghana Traditional Artiste of the year

Jun 28, 2013

There was lots of excitement at the Alisa Hotel in Accra during the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for 2013. Sheer Publishing would like to congratulate, Sherifa Gunu for winning Traditional Artiste of the year Award!

Sherifa is described by many as crowd shaker/puller and a real performer when it comes to singing and dancing. Sherifa Gunu will always leave an impression in the minds of anyone who comes into contact with her. Born as a princess into a royal family of Dagbon, in the Northern part of Ghana, Sherifa started her dancing and music career at a very tender age.

In 2003 Sherifa had the opportunity to take part in the hip life dance championship where the likes of King Ayisoba and Terry Bonchaka were among a list of talented dancers and musicians that were discovered through the competition. She emerged as first runner up to Bonchaka which lead to a series of collaborations among her, Terry Bonchaka and Ayisoba. We performed at various events and functions.

She later did some backings for artistes like Kojo Antwi, Amakye Dede, Daddy Lumba and also recently Nana Acheampong.

It is truly fitting that Sherifa wins Best Traditional music as she describes her music as Africana.  Congratulation Sherifa, we look forward to watching explore the African Diaspora with your unique and amazing talent!
