Afropop superstar, Burna Boy wants his fans to support Black Sherif’s by buying his album ‘The Villain I Never Was’.
Sharing a picture of Blacko’s maiden album cover on his official Snapchat account, the self-acclaimed ‘African Giant’ urged his followers to give the album a listen.
“Get that @blacksherif album now,” he wrote, and underneath the picture, he added “proud of lil bro(sic).”
Black Sherif artiste has trended at number one on Youtube for close to two weeks with his song ‘45’ from his maiden album.
Black Sherif released his debut album, The Villain I Never Was, via RBA / EMPIRE on October 5, 2022.
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.
From hits like “Kwaku The Traveller” and “Second Sermon,” Black Sherif is proud to deliver his first full-length project and make his US debut with a performance at Elsewhere in New York City on Sunday, November 6th. Stream The Villain I Never Was here.
