Warning: Before we gbas gbos Fireboy DML’s track— ‘Omo Ologo.’ I want to say that as a music lover and lyrics critic, I am entitled to my inanity just like any other individual reading. Feel free to scatter the comment section with your own narrative.
No doubt, Adedamola Adefolahan, known as Fireboy DML, is a lyrical wordsmith and a maestro with melodies. The YBNL replacement for Adekunle Gold brought in mesmerizing music flexing abilities and vocalization that surpasses his precursor into the record label. Jealous, the 23-year old’s sleeper hit of 2019, exposed his lyrical brilliance and rhythmical control to the world. Heightened with the copious poignant lyric. Laughter tears and goosebumps have over 24 million plays on AudioMack, and it spent two days on the US album chart. Scatter remains number one on Spotify Nija Top 50 with vibration on number 4.
The thirteen stellar tracks with no guest appearance have since its release, hailed as the best debut album of the New Era ever since “New Era” by kiss Daniel. Jealous was released in late 2018, but as a sleeper hit since it lacked a grand launch or huge commercial push. Still, it sustained itself over a long time to become a huge success.
