NEWS: #‎Today in History!! A street Legend was Born "Dagrin" October 21, 1987 - 22 April 2010 R.I.P

This is ma Own Lil way of Remembering this Young, Vibrant, Talented and Sophisticated Rap Legend DaGrin, I Loved His Music and his Personality... May His Soul continue to R.I.P

DAGRIN Birth name Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun Also known as
Barack O Grin, Lyrical werey, Fi mi le Jo. Was Born
October 21, 1987 Ogun, Nigeria and died in a Ghastly Motor accident on April 23, 2010 (aged 22) Lagos, Nigeria

He was an award winning Nigerian rapper from Ogun, Nigeria. A film of
his life entitled Ghetto Dreamz was released in April 2011. Dagrin's home was in Meiran, Alagbado, Lagos. His style
of rapping incorporated Yoruba, English and Pidgin
English. In 2010 he was nominated for the Nigerian
Entertainment Awards for Best Album (C.E.O.), Hottest
Single "Kondo", Best Rap Act and Best Collaboration
with vocals. His album C.E.O. (Chief executive Omota
English: Chief Executive Gangster) won the Hip hop
World Award 2010 for best rap album. From it came
the singles "Pon Pon Pon", and "Kondo". Dagrin worked
with other Nigerian artists such as Y.Q, 9ice, M.I, Iceberg
Slim,omobaba,terry g,code,MISTAR DOLLAR, TMD
entertainent, omowumi,chudy k, Bigiano, Konga.e.t.c. He
associated with music producers like Sossick, Dr Frabz, Sheyman, and Frenzy.

Dagrin's single "Pon Pon Pon" has some cultural
significance, it talks about the life style in Lagos,
Agege,Ifewara Mushin, Ikeja, Surulere, Isale Eko, and
many other parts of south western Nigeria where life in
the slums mixes up with life in the affluent cities and
parts of Lagos Nigeria. His songs touch upon ethnicity,
pride, while surviving the streets of Lagos and a hint of
criticism elderly people hurls against bad behaviour.
The music video proudly displays young people in their
twenties and early thirties proudly displaying their tribal
marks in retrospect of the old Yoruba empire of Ile-Ife.

Just two days before the horrific accident that took away his life occurred; Dagrin was putting together his last song, Show Me the Money, for Lineo 'Elepepe Master'. On April 14th, just a few hours before the accident,
Dagrin paid a visit to the Hip Hop World office in Ikeja.
The awards were drawing closer and with three
nominations to his name, the hustler's dream was finally coming true.
