On April 14, 2010, at about 3 am, a Nissan Maxima 2008 model ran into a parked lorry in front of Alakara Police station, Mushin, Lagos. It’s lone male occupant survived but sustained very serious head injuries and was rushed to the Tai Solarin Hospital, Mushin, soon he was moved to the intensive care unit of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH Idi Araba but eight days later, April 22 at 6pm, this young man passed on; a man everyone knew as Dagrin.
Today, three years later, fans remember this young dynamic artist who took yoruba rap to the next level. A whole crop of young upcoming and established artistes have toed his line yet, Dagrin’s sensational single Pon Pon Pon continues to remain ever green.
Reigning sensational yoruba rap artist Olamide Adedeji however is at the peak of his career with blazing hot singles sinking him deep as the Lord of Yoruba rap lyricists but has he successfully grown to be a big phenomenon Dagrin was? Can Olamide be the artist who now wears Dagrin’s shoes? You can share your opinions.
