Poe is Man Already
So back in February Mavin signed DNA Twins, Johnny Drille and Poe. Myself and other Poe’s fans were worried – fine, Mavin is great, they’ve some very cool artistes in the Nigerian music industry. But the record label focuses on commercial music and the implication of that could be, Poe changing his sound to fit in properly to their zone.
Fastfoward to last week, “Man Already” dropped as poe’s debut single since joining Mavin Records, people were excited. Some had mixed feelings – at least that’s what I got from a call I received from a friend that night. But really, Poe is “Man Already” and I don’t think he’s changing anytime soon – “now that I’m blowing, maybe they think I’ll dumb it down”. While a lot of people(including myself) would point to the fact that not having the Spax or IKON magic on his music might not be good for him, I feel that won’t stop him.
As a big fan of Poe, I’ve listened to most if not all of his songs and he never disappoints regardless the producer. However, kudos should be given to Altims for making the perfect instrumental for “Man Already“.
But only time would tell if Poe is “Man Already“.
