With his new track, “OH NO,” which is only a week old and already dominating charts and receiving a ton of radio spins, the ground-breaking artist has once again demonstrated his domination within the rapidly expanding African music scene.
The rapper’s anthem “OH NO,” which is filled with Highlife, Soul, and Drill and was produced by his longtime partner and in-house producer Samsney with additional production by Joker Nharnah, describes how he perseveres in the face of hardship while remaining faithful to his craft.
The “BET International Flow” winner reiterates in the song’s powerful chorus that he will continue to work hard, be loyal to himself, and never change.
The vocalist said, “It feels like me standing at the edge of an open-pit but I know the resultant effect of the very next step at that moment in time,” when explaining the motivation behind “OH NO.”
I made the decision to live my life without worrying about falling into a pit. I’m being prodded by voices both outside and inside. To either have me tumble into this deep abyss or to guide my next step away from the pit.
“Oh No” serves as a reminder of my calling and destiny. It’s me expressing who I am, what I have stood for, and taking pride in the job I have done thus far.
Black Sherif started the year off strong with the release of his double single project, “Take Care of Yourself Blacko.” This upbeat affirmation song about self-care encourages healing and pausing to think back on one’s journey.
Black Sherif has established himself as one of Africa’s most potent creative voices since the release of his debut album, The Villain I Never Was, last year. He has also racked up enormous global streaming figures, making him the most streamed Ghanaian artist of 2022 on Spotify and the most streamed Ghanaian artist of all time on Boomplay, a well-known African streaming platform.
Black Sherif, a key component of the new sound coming out of Africa, has achieved these heights in record time.
