Why Burna Boy Is the Only Artist Featured on Black Sherif’s The Villain I Never Was Album

With the release of his first album, The Villain I Never Was, Black Sherif gave music fans a great piece of work. The 14-song project came out on Thursday, October 6, 2022, on several streaming services.

Even though the album showed how diverse Black Sherif is as an artist, Nigerian superstar Burna Boy was only on the remix of the already released Second Sermon.

Black Sherif, whose real name is Mohammed Ismail Sherif, sat down with Dadaboy Ehiz on Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio to talk about the name of his first album and why Burna Boy was the only artist on the project. He said;

I 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 haven for me to talk about my insecurities, and 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.

I want people to know my perspectives on life, to 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.
