A facebook user has shared a rather saddening experience he had with the late Yoruba rapper, Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun porpularly known when he was alive as Dagrin.
He claimed he did a song with Dagrin in the studio which later became a hit, but sadly no credits was given to him, let alone a mention of his name. None of the efforts to make the song a hit was recognized.
Dagrin died 12 years ago, and this guy is jus coming to light about this now. He posted the incident on his facebook timeline saying;
12yrs ago today I recorded a song (Ghetto dreams ) with Dagrin , later released with no credit to Everest. RIP Dagrin
Dagrin died at the age of 25 on 22 April 2010 after a vehicle accident in 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 “Pon Pon Pon”, Best Rap Act and Best Collaboration with vocals. His album C.E.O. (Chief executive Omota) which means Chief Executive Thug won the Hip hop World Award 2010 for best rap album.
