Fireboy DML presents the official video of his song titled “Airplane Mode“, off his sophomore “Apollo“.
It is the latest clip after the previously released “Lifestyle” sometime last month.
Fireboy gets really personal and shows a vulnerable side on Airplane Mode. He sings about the stress from friends and family and how he has to live like an animal.
“So many things wey dey bother man stress from friends and family and Brotherman…
Man living like an animal, When a problem goes, Life comes with another one, But I’m a god, I’m a stronger man, I be different breed, my kind no be normal one…”
Fireboy understands his rise to being one of the finest acts would create conversation that he is trying to be number one. His aim isn’t just to be the greatest ever, he only wants to be one of the greatest to ever do it.
“I’m not trynna be the number one, So many legends dey, I’m just trynna be another one”
Due to the weight placed on his shoulders, Fireboy says he feels like he’s about to lose his mind. It’s a way of telling you that even if he has attained a god status, he is very much human like the rest of us.
“But Sometimes E dey be like say I wan manya oh, All the pressure and the wahala oh, E dey be like say I don tire, Sometimes, E dey be like say I wan manya oh, All the pressure and the wahala o”
Having to explain to people you want to be alone and do things on your own can be quite annoying. Fireboy says he just wants to be and doesn’t want to see any message from anybody (Go flight mode).
“I just wanna be alone, I don’t wanna see no message on my phone… Nothing dey do me, you should know I just feel like i should do this on my own, I just wanna be alone…”
In the second verse, he cries out about his woes ranging from money problems to woman drama and also the competition. He drops an important message – ‘Grace Is Important But The Talent Is A Plus’. He lets listeners into a reality that they can relate to – ‘The Reality Of Wanting To Give Up And Let Go’.
“If no be love, na money palava, If no be stress, na woman and drama, Competition people dey para, Too much beef when I no be mallam, Na God dey do am, no be my power, Grace na koko, the talent na jara, So i lock myself inside my yara go down on my knees, and i call on baba”…
Fireboy Introduced Airplane Mode video with a message that reads;
‘I have always wanted to do this, Be this. The gist is many people have talent but you see Grace, GRACE is the backing that makes the damn Talent shine. No one ever think of the problems that comes after Fame and Success. Omo mehn I don Taya!‘
The visual was directed by the veteran Clarence Peters.
