The winning goal came in the dying moments of the match, courtesy of Jarrod Bowen, after earlier strikes from Said Benrahma and Giacomo Bonaventura. This monumental achievement not only brought glory to the club but also added a significant milestone to the managerial career of David Moyes, who secured his first major trophy.

While there were no Ghanaian players on West Ham’s squad, the decision to embrace Black Sherif’s music for their celebration carries a symbolic significance. The Ghanaian artist, who was recently crowned Artiste of the Year at the 2023 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, has garnered international acclaim for his talent and exceptional musical productions.

Black Sherif’s rise to stardom has been nothing short of impressive, with his songs dominating the charts and gaining immense popularity across the continent. In a notable event last year, the Dallas Mavericks, an NBA team, played his hit track ‘Kwaku the Traveller’ during their warm-up session at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Moreover, Black Sherif’s debut album, ‘The Villain I Never Was,’ continues to reign supreme as the most streamed album on Boomplay Ghana, a prominent audio streaming platform.

West Ham United’s choice to commemorate their Conference League victory with Black Sherif’s ‘Konongo Zongo’ exemplifies the power of music in unifying cultures and celebrating achievements. It showcases the growing influence of African artists on the global stage and highlights the club’s appreciation for diverse musical talents.

As the world recognizes West Ham’s historic achievement, the collaboration between football and music serves as a reminder of the universal language that transcends boundaries and brings people together in moments of triumph.
