I Was Labeled My Family’s ‘Black Sheep’ For Doing Music – Fireboy DML Cries Out
Nigerian singer, Fireboy has emotionally opened up about the struggles he faced at home when he started out in the music scene.
He stated that his parents, especially his mother protested against the idea of abandoning school to concentrate on doing music. He added that the reason his mother opposed him was because he chose the secular music as his preferred genre.

Fireboy stated that after finishing the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, he came to Lagos to pursue his dreams of being a musician as he met Olamide in Lagos where one thing led to the other.
“My mother was forcing Yinka Ayefele, Tope Alabi songs down my throat. I was not the black sheep in the family until l told my parents l was going for music. My parents weren’t supportive at first because it was a switch. It was a very big switch from a promising child that seemed destined to be a professor to someone who suddenly woke up to wanting to be a musician.
“It took some time for them to get used to that. Their reaction was because l gave them hope that l was going to be a scholar and then the sudden switch. I convinced them in the long run by becoming successful. My mum is my biggest fan now,” he added.
