Video: Black Sherif goes global as players of Ligue 1 club jam to his ‘second sermon’

The Ligue 1 club defeated Lille 1-0 on Saturday and the players decided to celebrate the victory with Black Sherif’s ‘second sermon’.

In a video that has gone viral, the players are seen singing word-for-word as the song was playing in their dressing room.

Black Sherif has risen quickly in the Ghana music industry, having surfaced on the scene just over a year ago.

His ‘second sermon’ track remains his biggest song to date and has already garnered over 6.5 million views on YouTube.

This comes after Manchester City star Jack Grealish also used Yaw Tog’s ‘Sore’ remix for his promotional video.

In August, the England international has used the popular track in a compilation video for the SWM Magazine.

The song, which features UK rapper Stormzy and Kwesi Arthur, was released five months ago and has been a big hit across the globe.

‘Sore’ remix had over a million views within the first 72 hours of its release on YouTube and currently has over five million views on the channel.

The song has also become very popular in the UK due to Stormzy’s verse, with the rapper giving a shout-out to Grealish.

In one of his rap lines, Stormzy said: “Slide in the middle like Grealish. My next hit's bigger than my previous. Red light's looking all green-ish.”

To this end, the Manchester City star appears to have adopted the song as his official anthem, having now used it twice for his video compilations.
