Oladapo Olaitan ‘Dagrin’ Olaonipekun died from injuries he sustained in a ghastly motor accident about a week earlier.
He died on April 22, 2010. He was just 22 years old, but his unique style of rap music was already very popular.
In the early hours of April 14, 2010 Dagrin had been involved in a lone accident, colliding with a stationary articulated vehicle in front of Alakara Police Station, off Agege Motor Road, Mushin, Lagos.
Though Dagrin lived a short life, his style of rap is still influencing the music scene. Artistes like Olamide, lil Kesh, Phyno, Reminisce and many others are some of the best examples of Dagrin’s influence on the Nigerian rap scene.
Below are some of Dagrin’s songs that have remained on people’s playlist six years after his death…
