Adedamola Adefolahan, a Nigerian artist popularly known as Fireboy DML, has disclosed that his father forced him sign an agreement before he was allowed to leave school and move to Lagos.
While speaking with Zeze Millz about how he got his start in music as a studio errand boy, the singer of “Vibration” said this.
As a “studio rat,” Fireboy claimed he was spending more time in the studio, which was affecting his academic performance.
He admitted that after some time, the industry executives in music realized he could write, which is how he got his start writing songs for artists.
Fireboy later told his father that he intended to drop out of school in his final year and move to Lagos.
He found it strange that his father did not complain, but instead had him make a promise to always obey him and, after two years, to do as he is told if he doesn’t blow.

The YBNL artist has since clarified that he is not a playboy, contrary to popular belief.
In order to send the message that he is about to break out of his shell, play, and have fun like never before, Fireboy claims that he named his third studio album “Playboy.”
He said that for the past three years of his career, he has been avoiding it, but that is about to change as he prepares to enter the celebrity realm.
As he puts;
“I want to put a disclaimer, it is not the kind of playboy everybody thinks. It is just a young man that decided to come out of his shell to play, to have fun, experience life, to step into his superstar element.
I’ve been shying away from it the past three years as a blown established artist, I think its time for me to step out of shell to enjoy the fame I’ve worked for over the past few years”.
