So far, Fireboy seem to be the most successful YBNL signee and Olamide favorite, as you can see in the attached photo.
Wherever Olamide goes, he(Fireboy) goes too. Badoo must have been making some cool cash through the young star DML, it’s obvious lol.
These are my personal observations and opinion though. What do you think?
