The internet has been awashed with tribute messages to late young Nigerian musician Oladapo Olaitan popularly known as Dagrin who died 10 years ago.
The incident surrounding Dagrin’s death has not given way for people to forget after his untimely demise which occurred on April 22nd 2010.
The 26-year-old died in a car accident the same day he recorded ‘If I Die’ song.
A close friend has shared exactly how Dagrin died!
I remember the day Dagrin recorded “If I die” he just recorded his verse on a collab…. Frenzy was playing beats and he begged to freestyle on that particular beat. It was a Friday afternoon so I quickly went for Jumat prayers…
By the time I got back he was already on the 3rd verse… everyone in the studio was hyped… @scoopnaija was in the studio that day as well.. Funny thing is no one felt some typ of way about the lyrics on the hook… we were all just vibing to it… @FrenzyNaija did a quick rough mix and burnt it on a cd and gave him… he was in high spirits. After that we had a lil freestyle session and went back and forth as usual… I think @ValentineEkanem or @scoopnaija made a video recording of that. Dagrin left the studio that day very excited about the “if I die” song he just recorded. He said “walahi, you no know how happy I dey like this, as I dey comot here mo koko ma lo shrine kin lo fagbo naa” No one even remembered the song until that evening we got news of his death‘
