Fireboy DML, a recording artiste signed to Olamide‘s Yahoo Boy No Laptop (YBNL) has disclosed that himself and Mavins/Jonzing World signee, Rema are the leading artistes of the modern Afrobeat era.
The renowned singer whose real name is Adedamola Adefolahan made this known during an interview session with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1.
Fireboy worked with Rema on the single, ‘Compromise‘ off his recently released 3rd studio album, Play Boy. Rema also made a cameo in the music video for Fireboy‘s ‘Play boy‘.
Fireboy said they both decided to work together so that they could bury any competition or superiority argument that their fans might want to stir between them.
According to the Peru hit-maker, it made sense for him and Rema to collaborate so that there would not be a repeat of their predecessors mistakes.
“Myself and Rema are like the two leading artists of our generation, without a doubt.
“We came together and realized that, ‘Yo, instead of giving these fans what they want, which is beef, let’s collaborate.’ We don’t want to repeat any mistakes from the past; we just want to make money.”
“The fans are still doing their stuff. They’re relentless, but we will continue to show love because that’s the only way.
“We are too advanced for this stuff, so we came together, and we want to really give them the obvious club banger that they want.
“We will come together and make proper, proper music, and that’s what we did. We have other songs that are immediate club bangers, but they did not fit into the vision that I had for this album.
“There’s like five more records, like five more Fireboy DML and Rema records. I don’t know about this year, but I’ll be getting it, definitely.”
