Fireboy: From OAU to winning big at the 14th Headies
fireboy ‘Apollo’ also becomes the fourth YBNL album to nab Album of The Year after Olamide won for three consecutive albums between 2013 and 2015.
Born Adedamola Adefolahan, Fireboy DML used to be simply known as DML. In those days, he featured on Cheque’s EP, when both were undergraduates at the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. A little while later, he attended the same songwriting academy with fellow artist, Joeboy.
Then he moved in with Mystro and wrote the hit single, ‘Immediately’ before collaborating with his best friend, Oxlade on the vocal show-off, ‘Sing.’ Word on the street has it that at the time, Fireboy was asked to move out of an apartment.
