The Villain I never was, the debut album from Ghanaian newcomer Black Sherif, is the only one from the country to make the list of the top 50 albums of 2022.

Black Sherif has steadily elevated to the position of Ghana’s rap scene’s golden voice. Sherif’s debut album, The Villain I Never Was, arrived after a string of massive successes that were both reflective and uplifting, and it immediately became a classic.

Black Sherif, a nominee for the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards, is now succeeding in the entertainment business.

Fans and music enthusiasts have expressed their gratitude for the rapper’s album following the successful release of the 14-track album, which includes the African Giant, Burna Boy on track 14, “Second Sermon Remix.”

Within less than a day of its release, the album “The Villian I Never Was” had amassed more than 70 million views on the streaming and audio discovery website Audiomack.

The album also peaked at number 12 on the Billboard list, sandwiched between BTS’s “Love Yourself: Tear” album at number 13 and Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” album at number 11.

On Ghana’s Apple Music Top 100 Charts, the songs “Oil In My Head,” “The Homeless Song,” “45,” and “Konongo Zongo” also made their debuts.

Black Sherif is not only appearing on world charts or blowing up streaming algorithms but also caught the attention of international award schemes as he has received two nominations in just a month.

The notion that Afrobeats is one of the important musical genres now dominating the world of music is further supported by Audiomack’s list of the “50 Best Albums of 2022.”

Along with Wizkid’s “More Love, Less Ego” discography, “Love, Damini” by the self-described “African Giant,” Burna Boy, and the critically acclaimed albums by Fireboy DML and Asake of the YBNL Nation, “Playboy” and “Mr Money With the Vibe,” were among the greatest albums.

Other Nigerian Afrobeats artists on the list included Seyi Vibez’s “Billion Dollar Baby,” T.I. Blaze’s “The Fresh Prince of Lagos,” T Dollar’s “Born 2 Shine (EP),” and the talented FAVE’s debut EP “Riddim 5”.
