Talented Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Adedamola Adefolahan, known professionally as Fireboy DML has opened up on his childhood and some difficulties he faced.
Going down memory lane, Fireboy revealed that he was a lonely kid growing up, adding that he had low self-esteem at some point.
“I was a lonely kid, I had the love of my parents and my brothers at some point. I struggled with low self-esteem”
The “Peru” hitmaker has revealed that he was a lonely child and also suffered from low self-esteem. In an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Fireboy disclosed that a lot of things have changed since he became famous.
According to Fireboy, he feels like a “god” after his fame and his money. However, he also stated that irrespective of how fame is sweet, it can also mess a person up mentally if not handled well.
Fireboy explained further that mistakes are bound to happen with everyone but if one is a famous person, their mistakes are seen by everyone. He revealed that he is extra cautious because he does not want to make mistakes because being famous is dangerous.
“Fame is like money, it’s like sex. They can get to you and mess you up mentally. They can affect your thoughts and manipulate you into doing things. You feel on top of the world and you just make mistakes. When you are famous, and you make mistakes, you are making mistakes for everyone to see.”
“It’s different from when just a normal person makes a mistake and you can quickly correct them. There are some mistakes that are very costly and I don’t want to make a costly mistake. I am always very careful fame is very dangerous. Fame is powerful, sometimes you feel Iike a god. You are talking to a person and the person is even shaking”.
