“At the time, I was Sherif Frimpong Ismail. Those bullies would say, ‘How are you, a Muslim, calling yourself Frimpong”, he said.

“I didn’t like the Frimpong name, even though that’s my father’s name. Due to that history, I have always felt I have to do something, I have a debt to pay, pay my dues, so that name would be mentioned and honored. That’s why I never front Sherif Muhammed Ismail a lot”.
