Nigerian singer signed to YBNL and Empire Records, Ademola Adefolahan aka Fireboy DML has narrated his ordeal in the hands of his parents after he chose music.

According to him, he became the family’s black sheep after he who was being touted to be a professor suddenly became a musician.

Featuring in the season finale of ‘Behind The Story’, a show by MTV Base he revealed his mother was his greatest adversary for choosing secular music over the likes of Ayefele and Tope Alabi but now, she’s his biggest fan.

He said, “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,” he said.

“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 sometimes 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.”

The music star added that after completing his studies at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, he came to Lagos to pursue his music career and then worked his way to stardom through hard work.
