Popular Nigerian rapper, CDQ has made a very interesting statement about late Dagrin’s impact on the Nigerian Hip Hop music scene.

The rapper alongside Vector, M.I Abaga, DJ Jimmy Jatt gave their respective opinions on the evolution of Hip Hop in Nigeria.

According to him, since Dagrin’s untimely death, Hip Hop suffered a major decline even till now. He further buttressed his point saying the rapper was the only artiste in his own opinion that stayed true to the genre.

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.

Before he gave up the ghost, he had first been treated at Tai Solarin Hospital, Mushin but was later transferred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba, where doctors declared him dead after efforts to save his life failed.

Though he lived a short life, his style of indigenous rap is still influencing the Nigerian 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 music scene.
