“Everyone in this world is a soldier—we are all in different battles. It’s a wake-up call. Stand and beat your chest, here they come. Your anxieties are coming. Your haters are coming. Your backstabbers are coming. Your own self is coming at you. So stand and let nothing pull you down. Don’t let them catch you off guard, never. People think they are fighting external battles, but the internal ones are bigger than what they see outside,” Black Sherif tells Apple Music about his new single “Soja”.
Rap Life Africa serves as a companion to Apple Music’s flagship hip-hop playlist, Rap Life.
