DaGrin 10 years remembrance Death

Its been 10 years since Nigeria Music industy lost a legend Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun, popularly known as Dagrin

MI in a series of tweets on Wednesday shared his experience with Dagrin and how much the rapper inspired his second album ‘MI2’.

The former Chocolate City rapper and boss narrated how Dagrin’s lyrics, and the wide acceptance of the late rapper’s ‘CEO’ album, inspired him towards making the album.

One of the stories MI shared about his experience with Dagrin took place in Satellite Town in Lagos. He was there to perform in Sound Sultan‘s end of the year party and ended up being blown away by Dagrin’s performance of his then-unreleased hit song, “Pon Pon”.

The ‘Chairman’ singer admitted that he was a little intimidated by Dagrin’s talent and energy.

He wrote, “In 2008 I was in a conversation with @elbama about some artists he was A&Ring for (YQ and LaLa) and he played me a LaLa song that had a rap verse in it. I remember playing that record for a friend of mine Sola and she just kept laughing during the verses.

“Every single line and she would pause it, laugh and try to explain what he was saying. I was blown away. I mean who writes verses so good that every line is quotable.

“That December Sound Sultan asked me to perform at his Satellite Town end of yr party and I remember sitting behind stage watching Dagrin perform a yet unreleased PonPon. I was blown away. This guy was the truth he was going to eclipse every rapper in the game.

“When PonPon dropped it shook the streets and airwaves in a way nothing had since Eedris and nothing did again till Baddoo. The energy, the flow, the power in his voice. This was HIPHOP!!!!! I knew I was a fan an even a little intimidated by the brilliance of this guy.

“DJ Neptune asked me to reproduce our 123 record and I remember DaGrin came to my room studio in Palmgrove to record. Simple guy. Talented. We gisted and laughed the whole time, spoke about trading collaborations and he hopped on a bike and was headed home.

“A few months later his album dropped.. without the CEO album, there is no MI2. I was chasing the template he set. Something so powerful but so easy for the everyday fan to relate to. The epiphany came one day sitting in Obanikoro and watching a street dude rap every lyric of his.

“By 2009 Christmas he was becoming the biggest rapper in the country… on every show… I remember him showing up to an end of year oil company party with a bulletproof vest on.. his energy consumed the hall that day.

“I saw him a few days before his accident… played a charity football game together… dapped it up… and everyone went home… I remember I was headed into Benin for a gig when I heard on radio… Dagrin was in an accident. Damn.. the country actually stopped.

“I don’t know if you guys remember.. but LUTH was packed every day till he passed… it spoke to the impact of his talent… his story… his charisma… and his person.. one of the greatest rappers ever in my book… DaGrin the CEO. 10 years gone but never forgotten!!! RIP”

American singer Drake has opened up about his decision to start share photos of his son Adonis on Instagram – two years after his birth.Drake talks about feeling of having a son Adonis

‘It was great for me. It was great to just share that with the world,’ the four-time Grammy winner revealed on Lil Wayne’s Young Money Radio on Apple Music. ‘I just woke up one morning and I was like, you know what? This is just something that I want to do.’

The 33-year-old God’s Plan hitmaker, who previously kept his toddler out of the public eye, posted a series of candid snaps of himself, Adonis and ex Sophie Brussaux at the end of March.

He explained his Instagram, which garnered more than 6.5 million likes, felt very ‘freeing.’ Drake talks about feeling of having a son Adonis

‘I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son. I don’t want to feel like, just, because of a life choice I made to be a celebrity, that I got to make everybody live under this blanket,’ he noted.

The 33-year-old rapper also praised Young Money for how he balances his career and fatherhood.

‘I’ve watched you be a functioning rap father for years, an incredible father. And that gave me a lot of confidence too,’ he told his pal.

‘I could just tell, the way your kids would stare at you,’ Drake said. ‘That was really inspiring for me, just to know that I can still keep pushing forward, as a musician and be there for my son.’

Back in October 11, 2017, Sophie gave birth to Adonis, but Drake did not acknowledge the existence of his child until the release of his album Scorpion in late June 2018.

Ending months of speculation, he sang about his child in the lyrics to his track Emotionless.Drake talks about feeling of having a son Adonis

Speaking about his experience of fatherhood, he revealed: ‘I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid.

‘Breakin’ news in my life I don’t run to the blogs/ The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call.’

Complicated: Back in October 11, 2017, Sophie gave birth to Adonis, but Drake did not acknowledge the existence of his child until the release of his album Scorpion in late June 2018

Referencing his former fling, the Take Care singer admitted the pair had only actually met on two occasions.

He added: ‘I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe. That s*** is in stone, sealed and signed.

‘She’s not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine. S***, we only met two times.’Drake talks about feeling of having a son Adonis

Musical debut: Speaking about his experience of fatherhood, he revealed: ‘I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world/I was hiding the world from my kid

A month earlier, however, Pusha T brought the child into the public eye with his diss track The Story of Adidon.

‘You are hiding a child, let that boy come home/Deadbeat mothaf***a playin’ border patrol,’ rapped the Daytona creator before revealing the child’s name to the public for the first time.

Since his son’s existence became public knowledge, Drake has talked about wanting to be on good terms with Sophie, who he claimed to have only met twice before they conceived the child.

Speaking on LeBron James’ HBO show The Shop, he said he was initially ‘scared’ to tell his mother about the situation, because he was never in a relationship with his child’s mother. Drake talks about feeling of having a son Adonis
