Rapper Black Sherif, the man of the moment, has revealed that his debut album, ‘The Villain I Never Was,’ is an autobiography.
In an exclusive conversation with NY DJ on Y102.5FM, the award-winning musician explained that the album recalls a sequence of unforgettable episodes in his life and is not a work of fiction.
“I write from a deeper, raw and real place. I don’t like to filter stories or emotions. I put everything in there. That’s how I want to see art. I feel like I’m on a journey and with the music I do, I’m kinda marking memories and telling my story as I keep going, ” he said.
According to the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards candidate, the album evokes every passion because it portrays his challenges even at such a young age.
“At age 20, I’ve seen a lot. Whatever you listen to on my album and could think about, I’ve seen it in real life. That’s why I go detailed about it. This is not fictional. This is my autobiography. The album is my autobiography. That’s me from 1 to the last song…” Black Sherif said.
Black Sherif published a 14-track album, ‘The Villain I Never Was,’ on Thursday, October 6, 2022, and it debuted in the UK’s top ten albums according to Spotify Charts.
The album, which only featured one song by Burna Boy, has subsequently received over 100 million streams across multiple digital platforms.
With his huge hit songs, the award-winning rapper has smashed a lot of records. He is currently one of Ghana’s most successful musicians, with his songs breaking into the Nigerian market.
