Why I’m relaxed and not chasing more success – Fireboy DML

Fireboy DML, the singer whose real name is Adedamola Adefolahan, says he is not chasing more success because 2023 has taught him to enjoy his wealth and appreciate “God’s blessings”.

He spoke during an interview on Cool FM, saying that this year being “relatively slow” for him musically, made him see life from a different perspective.

He said, “This year, more than ever, has taught me to take a break, relax and appreciate God’s blessings instead of chasing more and more success.

“This year, being like a relatively slow year for me [musically], kind of like put things in perspective like, ‘Okay, maybe, it’s time to get off that high and relax; take a deep breath. There’s family. Enjoy the wealth you’ve gathered. Appreciate the things around you and stop chasing success.

“This year I’m relaxing. I’m always at home, I’m recording in the studio. On Sundays, I play football. And once in a while, when I miss the attention of the ladies, I hangout with them.”

Fireboy who had an impressive global run between 2021 and 2022 said he decided to take the year (2023) to learn and grow.

The ‘Peru’ crooner said; “This year is one of those years where it’s necessary for artiste to grow and step down from all the craziness. 2023 has been a year of learning and growth for me as a person and as an artiste.

“I’m just really grateful for the journey. When people say be grateful for the journey, I think this year has been that year for me.

“Sometimes, it’s okay to step out from being an artiste and just realise that you’re human as well. With an actual life, with real problems just like everybody else.

“And this year has really taught me to appreciate all those things. But this year has been rather quiet for me so it’s also giving me more time to spend more time with family at home in Lagos, Nigeria.”
