Ghanaian sensational artist Black Sherif has disclosed the reason why he featured only Nigerian artist Burna Boy on his debut album “The Villian I Never Was”.
Black Sherif has dropped his much-anticipated album titled “The Villian I Never Was” and fans can’t get over it., All the songs on his album have been trending on music platforms since its release.
During a conversation about his debut album with DadaBoy Ehiz via Facetime on Apple Music 1 to Talk dee, Black Sherif gave an insight into why he featured only Burna Boy and the mood behind his new album.
“I really needed to know myself and explore everything in me before I can start sharing out for people to help me tell my story. Music for me has always been very personal, like a safe haven for me to talk my insecurities, things I can’t say outside, so to get someone on a record with me, I just feel like they can’t help me tell my story.”
“That’s why I went real solo on the album – you know the “Second Sermon (Remix)” with Burna was the only feature on this album. I want people to know my perspectives on life, to actually brief them on what I know, what I’ve seen, what I believe in and how I’m doing. But soon, collaborations are gonna come, trust me.”
Speaking on Why he named the album “The Villian I Never Was”, Blacko said he spoke his truth in the project and sang about his insecurities, including being demonized by people and himself.
“All of the times I’m the villain – in my story, in people’s story – everywhere I’m the villain, but when I sit and think about it I know “Nah bro, I don’t just wake up to be a villain.” I’m fighting for my life, I’m trying to make sense, I’m trying to be a better person so I really wasn’t the villain that people paint me to be or that myself is telling me. I’m not the villain.”
