Black Sherif, a Ghanaian rapper, has stated that his most recent single was originally taken from his much anticipated next album, “The Villain I Never Was.”
He revealed this to 3Music executives in a private meeting that was set up so that he could play some of his unheard music.
Video of the meeting, which 3Music affiliate Eric Toscar claims occurred about a month ago.
“Do you know why this song was made available? We removed this song from the album when it was put together. We removed it. Sherif informed Baba Sadiq Abdulai Abu, the creator of 3Music Networks, that this music was not included.
After recording it, “I told him I found myself unable to listen to any other music save for this particular one,” he continued.
The singer-songwriter attempted to let the listener understand how important the song was, but it was unsuccessful at the time.
Blacko, as he is affectionately known, remembers, “I was not unhappy” when this occurred.
But one day, while we were there, he returned and said, “We need to release this song next,” he said.
The “Kwaku the Traveller” singer inquired about the explanation for the U-turn from the anonymous person, who may have been Sherif’s record company A&R executive.
It turns out that he had listened to the song once more.
This proved to Black Sherif how accurate he was about the song being unique.
He reflected thoughtfully, “When I composed this song, where I was mentally, it was important to write this song.
He said, “I haven’t written a Drill song in five months,” adding that he has recently been “making reggae tunes” among other things.
The American-based Empire signee’s most recent song, dubbed “Soja,” was released on Thursday, September 22, 2022, and has a sound that is reminiscent of the Ghanaian music genre known as Adowa.
