“I make Afrobeats, but with a bit more soul and lyricism. That’s the spice I bring that makes me different. I’m inspired by human emotions and how they affect our decisions. And I’m on a mission to further cement my sound in other parts of the world, pushing Afrobeats to the global scene,” remarked Fireboy DML when the announcement was made.
Fireboy DML is known professionally as Adedamola Adefolahan.
He is signed to YBNL Nation, an independent record label founded by Nigerian rapper Olamide.
