We are shinning the light on the fast rising artiste born to YBNL records, the Jealous crooner, Fireboy DML.
Adedamola Adefolahan, goes by the stage name, Fireboy DML is from Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. He is an Afro-Pop Nigerian artiste who was born on the 5th of February, 1996.
The 23-year-old fast rising artiste, started his career in church which helped prepare him for who he is today! But, before the launch of his career into what it is now, he first became a graduate from the department of English Language at the Obafemi Awolowo University.
The singer and song writer is lyrically gifted which gave him the opportunity to become a member of the YBNL Family that has been a blessing to him today. Fireboy DML was first discovered by Cool FM through the Aux Program organized by the station in 2018.
His talent on the program caught the attention of Olamide, the YBNL boss who couldn’t see a beautiful talent and let it go as he official added him(Fireboy DML) into the family through an agreement signed and sealed by the artiste.
After been blessed beyond his wildest imagination, he was refined and well branded by his new team to become a golden star. He got started on his music the same year he was signed, so as to bring out a muster hit song and make some money for himself but most especially, to show how serious he was to get to work.
Not all that work so hard get recognized so quickly as him. He put his heart and soul into the track that brought him to stardom, titled Jealous and fortunately for him, he got recognized. Initially when the song came out, it didn’t get recognized much, because it was covered up by other songs released by already successful artistes. But like a rejected stone that became the chief corner stone, luck smiled on him in the month of March, 2019 with the right promotion done on the song, the song finally picked up and became a hit song nation wide and has been on the lips of everyone. The beat is world best as I like to call it, because it forces you to move to the song.
The song might not be topping charts as it did before when it spent over 22weeks on top, but it is still unstoppable and remains a trending song. The song, which has become everyone’s favourite, brought the talented artiste to Limelight.
Seeing the love his fans has shown/showing him, he released another banger, What If I Say which has gotten over a million streams on Apple Music. How much blessing can a new artiste ask for?
It’s been an unbelievable and remarkable journey for him since the start of his career and he is enjoying every bit of it. We look forward to more hit songs and awards from the unquenchable Fireboy!!!
