Fireboy DML Gets AudioMack Plaque For Achieving Over 350 Million Streams

YBNL Nation signee, Adedamola Adefolahan, known professionally as Fireboy DML, whose music fuses Afropop, R&B, and soul has reached yet another milestone for achieving over 350 million streams on audiomack.

Fireboy has made remarkable progress in over four years that he made his debut in the Nigerian music industry as an Afro-pop artiste.

“Jealous,” his 2018 breakthrough single, won Listeners’ Choice honors at the 2020 Soundcity MVP Awards Festival, presented by a popular African music TV channel.

Within three days of its release, Fireboy DML’s 2019 debut album, ‘Laughter, Tears & goosebumps’ garnered over 153 million plays. 

His follow-up compilation and sophomore album, ‘APOLLO’—featuring guest turns by American rapper D Smoke and Nigerian singer Wande Coal—rose to No. 14 on Billboard’s World Albums chart in 2020 and raked in 154 million streams.

In July 2020, his “New York City Girl” reached No. 11 on Billboard’s Top Triller Global chart, and a month later, “Eli” peaked at No. 7 on the same chart.

The remaining streams, which pushed Fireboy’s record to 350 million, were gotten from singles he released on the portal.

Speaking on Fireboy’s short term achievements, Jason Johnson, Vice President of Marketing and Brand Strategy for Audiomack said;

“In less than 4 years, Fireboy has made a mark in both the local and global music industry and we are very excited to commemorate the incredible feat of over 350 million streams on Audiomack.

At Audiomack, we believe in acknowledging and awarding talents for the milestone they have achieved in streaming, and our goal is to highlight the hard work artistes are putting into their careers digitally and the contributions of supporting stakeholders, including management teams, fans, and industry players like Audiomack”.
