Nigeria Afrobeat star, Adedamola Oyinlola Adefolahan, stage named Fireboy DML has term fame to be a ‘manipulative spirit’.
He explained that just like money and sex, fame lures one into making costly mistakes.
The singer made this known during an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
According to Fireboy: “Fame is a f*cked up spirit. It’s like money, it’s like sex. Those three things can f*ck you up mentally.
“They can affect your thoughts. They can manipulate you into doings [that ordinarily you wouldn’t have done]. They make you feel on top of the world, then you’ll start making costly mistakes.
“And when you are famous and you make mistakes, everyone will see you.
“It’s not like when you are a normal person that you can quickly correct them. Omo, there are some mistakes that are very costly and I do not want to make costly mistakes.”
