A Chat with Poe – Douglas

What does music mean to you, and how does that reflect in the music you make?
“I’m really fortunate that other people like what I do because I’m really selfish with my music. This may sound weird, but I like my own music… For me, it’s cathartic. I don’t have to think about it, and most importantly it’s not judgmental. With music you really can do anything you want and it’s not going to tell you to stop doing that. So I like that, and I like my own music because it’s guided by my own personal experiences.
Also, I’m not trying to say that I’m creating music to change the world, but more than anything I do want to showcase what comes out of Nigeria, and out of Africa. I want Nigerians and Africans not to worry… To have faith in the fact that our continent is a good source of anything that you think is dope or innovative. It’s us.”
