For every artiste in the entertainment industry, it is expected at some point that they share their story to stardom to get their fans and followers in tune with their life behind-the-scene.
Sharing his before-stardom story recently is Fireboy who opened up on how life was and would have been if not for music.
Speaking with Sammy Walsh at the MTV BASE behind-the-scene show, the Abeokuta born singer whose real name is Adedamola Adefolahan noted that life was very prosaic before he became a sought after singer in the Nigeria music industry.
According to Fireboy, he discovered that he was meant to be a musician during his second year at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, of which was against the desires of his parents for him.
As against the fact that his parents expected him become something “better” than being a musician, the singer noted that his father specifically expressed his chagrin over the fact that he chose music when he graduated from the university.
However, now that he has become the all-loving Fireboy of the Nigerian music industry, his parents have accepted him and have become his biggest fans.
Who wouldn’t love the boy with fire?
Typical African parent, right?
Well, speaking on his style of music and why “jealous” became so big in the industry, Fire boy revealed that the song was a direct result of his failed relationship, of which he knew will be accepted to be a bang by all.
Meanwhile, before he became a big name in the industry, the star noted that getting the attention needed for his works was not funny as he was rejected multiple times, but luck started smiling at him when he became a signee of YBNL, courtesy of Olamide.
Being a big man in the industry already, while advising young artistes on how to go about their journey in the industry, Fireboy asserted that his focus next will be to go on tour now that he has released his album, Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps.
What a journey Fireboy had right?
