Dagrin lives on 9 years after his death
Today makes it 9 years since Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun, also known as Dagrin, died.
Dagrin was a Nigerian rapper from Ogun who died in an auto crash on 22 April 2010 in Lagos.
His music career was just picking up with the release of his second album CEO (Chief Executive Omoita) which quickly labeled him as one of the best rappers in the country.
His rap style was street and all about the struggles encountered towards success. He rapped mainly in his native Yoruba language and had beats that could make people who don’t understand a word he’s saying bump their head regardless.
A film of his life entitled Ghetto Dreamz was released in April 2010.
