Remembering Da Grin

 Un Categorized

Today, Monday April 22, 2013 marks three whole years since Olaitan Oladapo Olaonipekun better known as Dagrin passed away. How he died: Dagrin died at 6:00PM on Thursday, April 22 - exactly eight days after he was involved in a ghastly accident in front of Alakara Police station, off Agege motor road, Mushin, Lagos. The late rapper’s car, a Nissan Maxima 2008 model ran into a parked lorry in front of Alakara Police station, Mushin. He was initially admitted at Tai Solarin Hospital, Mushin before he was transferred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) Idi Araba where Doctors made serious efforts to save his life. He was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit and operated upon, and later moved to the private wing of the hospital where he died! Doctors at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital LUTH said he survived nine attacks before he finally gave up during the 10th attack. The nation was thrown into mourning; those who didn’t know the rapper Dagrin were forced to (Like me, I didn't know him till he passed onbut not like me i knew right from the and my friend lekan..loved his music right from the democracy track)

Dagrin would be at every Hip-Hop show in Lagos, trying to get a three-minute spot on stage’. Dagrin struggled for years, hopping from one studio to the other, in a quest to record a music album. It took a few years for the struggling act that had been desperately looking for financial support to seal a record deal. In 2006, he released his debut ‘Still on the Matter’ under LEO Entertainment which was mildly received... His relationship with his Parents: Dagrin allegedly had a strained relationship with his father, Comrade Olaniyi Abolaji Olanipekun but he was very close with his mother Mrs Olanipekun. His lovelife: Before his death, Dagrin had also broken ties with his girlfriend Chichi.

The couple had dated for seven years but Chichi kept pressuring for more than a mere commitment, friends of the couple say. ‘Dagrin at that time wasn’t ready for marriage so he let her go’, online reports disclosed. 3years after his death: Three years after, things seem to have changed, Dagrin’s death suddenly inspired a whole lot of rappers to hit the studio spitting in Yoruba language. Now we have the likes of Olamide, BaseOne, Tipsy, Jyhbo, Seriki obviously inspired by the general himself Barack O’grin. The Dagrin Documentary: In April 2012, Video director GINI released a documentary ‘Remembering Dagrin’, to mark the second anniversary of the rapper’s death. The one-hour plus clip featured never-before-seen clips and images of Dagrin. It also contained interviews with individuals that crossed the path of the young man and contributed to his rise to fame in the Nigerian music industry. The one who received all the attention isn’t here to see it…

Dagrin toiled and toiled, touched the tip of success and was going for the gusto only to lose it all in the most shocking of ways… May his soul rest in peace....

I live my life based on gratitude

I live my life based on gratitude yes! I see every situation as an opportunity to be grateful. growing up wasn't easy not because we were very poor but because my dad is a disciplinarian that won't want his kids to have everything in abundance which sincerely, i used to hate him for but when i got older i realised that he did it for the best. i have no regrets about those hard days infact im grateful that i had those days because thats is the only reason why today i can survive through every situation. If i wake up in the morning healthy, and I all my family and friends are alive I'm always filled with gratitude. i try to keep it simple, maybe its easy for me based on how i was engineered or brought up! but i really dont want too many things. if I have good food, light in my house, decent clothes and my work..I'm satisfied, I don't want the best car, the best clothes, the best grateful for what i have presently. I'm so grateful for being alive to

How to make withdrawal as an agent on bet9ja

Today i'm going to show you how to withdraw from bet9ja especially as an agent  I realized a lot of agents do have a lot of problem with knowing how much or how  to withdraw to their bank account whenever they have winnings   so today i will be spilling the beans and by the end of this post  you should never and ever call customer care again on how to withdraw or how much to withdraw  ok lets go there... first, go to and log in to your bet9ja agent 'admin account'  before you start the withdrawal process the first thing to do is to know how much you can actually withdraw, most people forget that they need to remove the sales they made from the cash they will be asking for from the company  But how will you really know how much to withdraw ? first  from ''my account'' go to  ''report''  at  bottom left corner  Then from 'report' you click on  ''sportracingdeposit''
