The Album of the Year was won by King Promise’s 5 Star.
Black Sherif joined co-hosts Cookie Tee and Berla Mundi on Monday, May 8 on TV3′s New Day, where he expressed his feelings about not winning the Album of the Year.
“Obviously, I was waiting to hear my name, but when my name wasn’t mentioned, I said, ‘Yawa’, ” he revealed.
According to Kwaku The Traveller hitmaker, he wasn’t disappointed because every nominee in that category deserved an award.
His album ‘The Villain I Never Was’ competed with the likes of ‘Jamz’ by Sarkodie, ‘My Diary’ by Gyakie, ‘Son of Jacob’ by Kwesi Arthur, ‘Kadosh’ by Joe Mettle and eventual winner ‘5 Star’ by King Promise.

Black Sherif, however, won five awards out of 11 nominations.
From Best Hip-hop Song of the Year, Best Music Video, Best Hip-life/Hip-hop Artiste, Most Popular Song to the ultimate win of the night, Artiste of the Year.
