People Don’t Want To See My Mistakes Anymore – Black Sherif
Ghanaian musician Black Sherif has opened up about his meteoric ascent to stardom and growing up in the spotlight.
Growing up in public is difficult for him because people expect him to be flawless.
In an interview with CNN’s Larry Madowo, the Ghanaian rapper discussed how he broke into the music business at the age of 19.
Opening up about growing up in the spotlight, Blacko admitted that being in the spotlight as a 19-year-old two years ago was difficult.
“No one wants to see you make mistakes anymore.” It is difficult. Only in my life am I the lead actor. So I try to do what is best for me,” he added in the interview.
He also stated that only his family and those close to him knew he could sing, and that being in the spotlight on an international scale astonished him.
The Kwaku the Traveller hitmaker is astounded by how many people recognize his music. He stated that a month after his debut album, The Villain I Never Was, was published, he played in London and his fans sung his songs from A-Z. He explained what fuels his craft.
“My feelings are my art.” When I’m crying, I produce music. When I’m joyful, I compose music. When I’m confused, I produce music.”
Black Sherif shot to fame in 2021 with his song ‘First Sermon,’ which he published in May of that year. This was followed by the ‘Second Sermon’ in July.
His breakthrough came in March 2022, when his popular tune ‘Kwaku the Traveller’ achieved number one on the Ghanaian and Nigerian Apple Music charts.
His debut album, ‘The Villain I Never Was,’ debuted at number 12 on the Billboard World Albums Chart, his first appearance on the chart.
