Fireboy DML of YBNL and Rema of Mavin Records both came into the music industry at the same time and since then the comparison between them hasn’t stopped.
Fireboy DML and Rema are both artists who have both perform wonderfully in the music industry and a note of warning, this article isn’t aimed at declaring one person superior over the other but to actually explain why the comparison between them should stop.
While both artists can both be considered Afrobeats artists, one will agree that they sound different. Rema infuses trap into his music. That combination can be heard in his two of his EPs, “Rema the Freestyle EP” and “Bad Commando EP”.
Fireboy DML, on the other hand, is more or less an artist who loves his comfort zone and don’t get me wrong, it is not a bad thing for him. Fireboy DML sings songs that are unique to him and is acceptable to his fanbase.
In conclusion, they both have their own unique sound that can’t be compared.
While people say the numbers don’t matter, we all know that having high streaming numbers is bragging rights for artists who want to use it to compare themselves to a rival artist.
