FAST-RISING singer, Adedamola Adefolahan, popularly known as Fireboy, has cleared the air over the rumour that he is a son of Nollywood comic actor, Bolaji Amusan aka Mr Latin.
The rumour started making rounds when Olamide posted a picture of Mr Latin with a caption: “If I put a durag on him, who he gon look like? Tag him and japa.”
To fuel the rumour, Mr. Latin also merged the pictures of himself and Fireboy and shared it on Instagram. This created more doubt on whether Latin is really Fireboy’s father or not.
“I think this man is the biological father of @Fireboy,” a fan, @amdyofficial, commented.
However, the ‘Jealousy’ crooner said it was just a stunt, pulled off by his record label honcho, Olamide.
“It was just a joke that Olamide was trying to pull off,” Fireboy said.
“Mr Latin surname is Amusan and mine is Adefolahan, we are not related at all. Mr Latin is not my dad.”
The versatile artist who studied English Language at Obafemi Awolowo University, IIe-Ife, also disclosed that he sees nobody as a competitor in the Nigerian music industry.
“I am only in competition with myself. I’m no dragging sound with anyone and I think no one is dragging with me either.”
He continued: “I only have people I look up to, my daddies in the industry Davido, Wizkid, Olamide, Burna Boy.”
