Black Sherif’s ‘Kwaku the Traveller’ played at O2 Arena during boxing bout

Black Sheri’s ‘Kwaku the traveller’ was used as the entry song by Ghanaian-British boxer Joshua Buatsi as he walked into the 02 Arena in London.

With ‘Kwaku the Traveller’ playing in the background, the boxer arrived at the area in his pump and went ahead to deliver a great performance against Craig Richards.

The entry song of Buatsi received massive reaction from the audience at the 02 Arena.

Meanwhile, Black Sherif has released the official video of the song which has garnered over 1.6 million views on YouTube within three days of its release.

In February, Black Sherif went global after his ‘Second Sermon’ remix was played at the 2022 NBA All-Star game.

The song, which features Nigerian superstar Burna Boy, has been a big hit since its release in December 2021.

Buatsi, 29, defeated Richards on Sunday to put himself in a good position for a world title shot.

He dominated his opponent in all the rounds, eventually securing a 116-112, 115-113, 115-113 unanimous verdict.

The 2016 Olympic bronze medallist made a statement while entering the O2 Arena by using Black Sherif’s latest hit track.

Buatsi’s victory means he is now in line who contest Dmitry Bivol for the WBA light-heavyweight title.
