Budding Nigerian singer, songwriter, Fireboy DML says he and Rema are the leading artistes in this new generation of music acts.
The YBNL Nation artiste stated this while having a chat with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1 about ‘Compromise’, his collaboration with the Dumebi crooner.
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.
He said; “Myself and Rema are like the two leading artistes 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.”
Watch him speak:
The singer who was born Adedamola Adefolahan better known also revealed how he made the song, Peru.
He said that some part of the lyrics was inspired by DMW artiste, Peruzzi, who usually uses a hook on his songs.
Fireboy noted that when he said ”I’m looooo, Peru don dey para”, that it was an allusion to Peruzzi.
He added that he recorded the song because he found himself in the United States for the first time.
He said that he experienced a writer’s block prior to that time, so recording Peru was a spontaneous move.
The Vibration crooner said that he was almost depressed at the time and when he landed in Miami, USA, he was intrigued by the feeling and experience after visiting a strip club.
