Fireboy DML’s Biography
Adedamola Adefolahan is a Nigerian musician, and songwriter who goes by the stage name “Fireboy DML”.
The singer was actually born in 1996, but he is already a well known star around the country.
Though he is new in the industry, Fireboy has already created a firm space for himself in the Nigerian music industry.
Today, he is already an award-winning singer with a huge fan base across the nation.
Fireboy DML had a natural love for music right from when he was still a young member of his local church choir in Abeokuta where he grew up.
Though he was a member of a local church choir.
He never thought of a career in the music industry until he was at the Obafemi Awolowo University.
At the University, Fireboy developed a strong interest in starting a music career.
Although he started while in school, he struggled for a bit before he was then discovered by Olamide who signed him to YBNL Nation.
As a young artist under the YBNL Nation, Fireboy received his breakthrough with the hit single titled “Jealous”.
This single appeared on the YBNL Mafia Family Album in 2018.
The song is a very creative song with a perfect blend of African guitar melodies, percussion, and drum which also makes it a pass for soul music.
The single was produced by Cracker Mallo, and the whole lyrics of the song are based on love and feelings of insecurity.
The music video for this single was handled by Director K and this song shot Fireboy DML into the spotlight.
The following year in 2019, the singer again dropped another banger titled “What If I Say”
This was another romantic single and it featured wonderful tunes from the producer Pheelz.
He created a perfect blend of harmonies from different instruments which formed a unified beat.
Fireboy’s vocals accompanied this beat and made it a hit single across the nation.
The video of this song was shot by TG Omori.
Barely three months after he dropped the single ‘What If I say’, Fireboy dropped yet another hit song titled “King”.
This song was produced by Echo The Guru.
Just like his previous hit, the video of this song was directed by TG Omori.
The video features the singer dropping his lyrics at a fashion runway where models walk.
It also features the singer and his video love in a Rolls Royce car with a background designed to suit the theme of love.
Towards the end of 2019, Fireboy dropped his first album titled ‘Laughter, Tears and Goosebumps’.
This was released on the 29th of November 2019.
The initial date for the release of this album was on the 25th of November, but it was later shifted to the 29th.
This album perfectly represents a niche in the mixture of R&B and Afrobeats.
The album is actually a combination of social issues, love, and many more interestingly deep topics.
This album is made up of 13 songs, and he didn’t feature any guest artist in it.
Barely 3 days after the release of this album in November, it received over 6 million streams on Spotify.
Mode of Singing
This album received a lot of accolades from music reviewers across the nation.
However, some reviewers criticized the singer for labeling the album an ‘Afro-Life’ album, instead of labeling it as an R&B project.
This album contained already-popular singles like ‘Jealous’, ‘King’, and ‘What If I say’.
Recently in 2020, the singer again released the tracklist of his new and latest album titled ‘Apollo‘.
