Released at midnight on October 6, 2022, the debut album has quickly become a social media phenomenon in Ghana for several reasons and among them is his creative touch. Secondly, it has a sensational feel to it; “Oh Paradise” his 12th track in the album relives a sad story of his battle with emotions following the death of his girlfriend Clementina Konadu five years ago. She died from an outbreak of Swine Flu when she was 17. Over and above his recent single ‘Soja’ introduced the album. New songs that made it to the album include ‘Oil in My Head’, ‘45’, ‘Da Youngsta’, 'Konongo Zongo', 'We Up', 'Toxic Love', and 'Don't Forget Me'.

Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie hailed Black Sherif for his debut album which he termed a masterpiece. “#TheVillainINeverWas Is what I woke up to … About to dive in it today and I know a true artist made this so it’s already safe to call it a masterpiece!! Congrats International BLACKO" he tweeted.
