Poverty brought out the musician in me — Gospel singer, Douglas

BY ROTIMI AGBANA

Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention, little wonder Nigerian banker turned gospel singer, Douglas Danor, otherwise known as 3D, parades himself as a true epitome of the popular mantra.

Speaking at the maiden edition of ‘Worship without limits’ gospel music concert which recently held in Lagos, the convener, Douglas Danor revealed that his experience with poverty pushed him into music after he lost his lucrative job as a banker.

“Worship without limits berthed as a result of my experiences in life; I was a banker but at a time I was sacked and things became very rough for me and my family. It was in the midst of that roughness, I wrote the songs I sing now. I also made some dangerous vows to God that if He brings me out of my precarious situation, I would use everything I have to serve him; so that’s what gave birth to this idea”, he noted.

He added that the essence of the concert was to convince others that there was nothing beyond God.

He said; “The essence of this idea is to get people to believe that if God can change my own story, he can change theirs also because I came out of a situation whereby I had to sell my wedding ring and other properties just to feed, pay my children’s school fees and take care of other things.”
