This article reveals 5 Hidden and Symbolic Details You Missed In Black Sherif's infamous Second Sermon Music Video.
1. The 12 Disciples and other biblical references
In the second sermon track, Black Sheriff talks about being in front of the house of someone who owes him and his squad money.
Blacko states that the number of (killers) he is there with are 12 in number.
They are captured perfectly in this shot, and they are exactly 12 in number. This shows they pay keen attention to detail.
Also, Although Sheriff Is not a Christian, there were some coincidental religious references made.
His clique of 12 can be a reference to the 12 disciples of Jesus Christ.
In the song, he asks the person who owes him to come down from a story building, which is similar to Jesus asking Zaccheus, a man who owed lots of people to climb down from a tree.
2. Locations used
Two main locations were used. One that looked suburban, and one that looked luxurious.
The first location is Konongo, which is where he was born and raised. From observing the suburban environment, and also by observing the shirt he wears anytime he is in the suburban-looking environment.
The luxurious location used was East Legon. This can be deduced from this street sign which is labeled Lagos Avenue.
The symbolism in terms of locations is as follows, In the early scene, we see Sheriff walking out of a made-shift house and is seen walking in a slum-looking neighborhood.
Then transitions to him now in more refined streets. Indicating that, he is trapping and hustling so he can attain the finer things in life.
