Nigerian singer, Adedamola Adefolahan, popularly know as Fireboy DML has revealed why he was not chasing more success this year.
2023 was a quieter year for Fireboy musically, but it gave him a chance to think about what’s important in life.
He talked about this in a recent interview with Cool FM Lagos.
According to him, he’s made a big change in how he sees the world this year.
Fireboy DML used to chase success all the time, but now he’s learned to be happy with what he has and appreciate God’s blessings.
He said that this slower pace helped him see things more clearly.
“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.”
So, Fireboy’s been spending more time at home, recording music in his studio, and playing football on Sundays.
He also said that he’ll go out with friends sometimes when he misses the attention of the ladies.
“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.”
