On both Original Copy and Apollo, a trio of up-and-coming producers shines brightly. Kelenna Agada, also known as Type A, contributed to the experimental edge that can be found in Fireboy DML’s sophomore release. The mood shifts from chirpy to cloudy to sensual with relative ease and heightened acuity across the five songs Type A created for the album.

Peace Emmanuel Oredope, also known as P.Priime, is an 18-year-old who has collaborated with Fireboy DML on both of his albums in addition to his standout work with Olamide and Zlatan since 2018.
