Black Sherif is Ghana’s rising superstar that has been making waves for a while now, even though many of us got introduced to him when ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ was teased on Tiktok a few months ago, in the West African region, they had known of his catchy, tuneful and high-sounding music from when he used to go by just Blacko. Black Sherif has been cementing himself as a one-of-a-kind artist ready to rise all the way to the top.
Black Sherif has now announced his long-anticipated debut album titled The Villain I Never Was which is set to be released on the 06th of October 2022. ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ and ‘Second Sermon (Remix)’ featuring Burna Boy are two of the songs we know that are in the upcoming album. There is a new song titled ‘Soja’ from the album that he released on the 22nd of September and unlike the other two songs this new offering is slower paced and its intensity, timbre, and pitch are on a medium level.
‘Soja’ is about his journey as a musical artist. He talks about how far he comes from and how close he is to reaching and fulfilling his dreams, “My mystery box is somewhere very near, I feel it inside me, I’m feeling very weird” he sings in a melodic and emotive tone on the first verse and “I’m too close I can feel it, Something is vibrating, Inside me, I’m celebrating” on the second verse.
