Black Sherif has been enskinned as youth chief of “Nachin Naa” in Tamale.
The singer was dressed in the traditional smock or batakari in a traditional ceremony in the town.
Black Sherif’s debut album, ‘The Villian I Never Was’ released four days ago, has recorded over 70 million views on the streaming Audiomack alone.
Blacko released his debut album ‘The Villain I Never Was’, via RBA / EMPIRE.
Sonically filmic and purposefully biographic, ‘The Villain I Never Was’ is Black Sherif’s trials and tribulations.
“It took me everything to give life to this body,” the 20-year-old artist said. “The one thing in my life that I gave everything up for. There is life in this body, I hope it treats you good and speaks to you like I want it to.”
His journey, from a young Muslim man from the mining town of Konongo to an internationally celebrated artiste, is as harrowing as it is electrifying, as depicted in “45” and “Soja,” the project’s focus tracks.
Combining his native tongue of Twi and his gift for storytelling with “asakaa” (the Ghanian take on the popular drill sound) and Afrobeats, Black Sherif blends cultures to create his own world on The Villain I Never Was.
