Fame, money, sex ‘manipulative’, can ruin your life, Fireboy DML warns

The singer sounded this warning during a recent conversation with media figure Chude Jideonwo.

• September 9, 2023

Nigerian singer Fireboy DML has spoken up against what he says are the manipulative influences of fame, money and sex.

He shared this perspective during a recent conversation with media figure, Chude Jideonwo.

The singer emphasised that the trio are “manipulative”, capable of negatively affecting peoples minds and can lead them to make “costly mistakes.”

He said that fame, much like money and sex, can influence your thoughts, push you to do things you wouldn’t normally do, give you a false sense of invincibility, and lead to regrettable blunders.

“Fame is a fucked up spirit. It’s like money, it’s like sex. Those three things can fuck you up mentally, They can affect your thoughts. They can manipulate you into doing and I do not want to make costly mistakes,” he said.

He further explained that mistakes made by famous people were always on display for everyone to see and difficult to fix, unlike those made by regular people.

“And when you are famous and you make mistakes, everyone will see you,” he said.

“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,” he added.

His thoughts come against the backdrop of the many controversies most celebrities have been embroiled in. These controversies range from drugs to baby mama drama, and infidelity, among others.
