Fireboy On How He Got Ed Sheeran On 'Peru' remix | Fab.ng

Nigerian music star Fireboy DML recently shared a fascinating story about his hit collaboration with global music sensation Ed Sheeran on the remix of Fireboy’s 2021 chart-topping single, “Peru.”

In a recent interview with Billboard News, the 28-year-old singer revealed that the collaboration came about after a friend of Ed Sheeran’s introduced the song to the British superstar. Fireboy revealed that Ed Sheeran himself reached out to him, expressing his interest in the song after a friend shared it with him.

Fireboy further disclosed that prior to this remarkable collaboration, he had expressed his fervent desire for a “global hit” that would significantly transform his life path.

“I remember praying for a song that would breakthrough on a global scale, something that would truly change my life forever,” Fireboy said, reflecting on the period before the collaboration.

“At the time, ‘Essence’ was enjoying significant popularity, and this inspired me to aim for even greater achievements. I would like to contribute to my genre by having a song that cuts across the whole world and changes my life forever.” he added.

“God gave me ‘Peru’, so the song blew up, amazing record. You know when a song blows up and it becomes this annoying record you hear everywhere in Africa, in Nigeria, especially in Lagos.

“It needed something special so it came in the form of the collaboration with Ed Sheeran. I was in the studio that day I remember when I got the call from Mr Kareem, he works with my label and he was like, guess what? Ed Sheeran is going to be on your record.

“Check your DM, I think he has sent you a DM. He has recorded the verse, everything is ready and I was like, what? But apparently, Jamal Edwards sent the song to Ed Sheeran.

“So after I got the call, I checked my messages on Instagram, and he had sent me a DM together with a voice note, and when I listened to verse, I was like this verse is fire.”

And that is how the chart-topping Peru Remix came about.
