The he is asking for too much volume. There is something wrong in his mix, or in his understanding of foldback.

He might not know what is wrong, but foldback is primarily there to allow him to sing in tune and in time – he doesn’t need a FOH style mix.

Is he asking for ‘more of everything’ all the time?
He probably *needs* the kick (might be able to hear directly), maybe a dash of snare, he’ll need some melody instrument (keys/guitar) and some of the other vocalists, but mostly himself.

Anything else is “fluff” and should be cut if you are struggling with volume. You possibly want to arrange a time in a rehearsal or extended soundcheck to focus on his monitor – for the sake of his hearing!
