It has been eight years since the tragic death of Dagrin and many stars have shared their thanks for his influence and legacy left behind.
The “Ghetto Dream” rapper passed away on April 22, 2010 at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital (LUTH). It was exactly eight days after he was involved in a ghastly auto accident in front of Alakara Police Station in Mushin, Lagos.
But Sunday (April 22) marked the eighth anniversary of Dagrin’s untimely death, and the response of tributes from the fans, and celebrities that include his former colleagues has been enormous.
8 years ago one of the kindest souls I’ve met in the industry became an angel. I can never forget how he would always bring me 50 liter kegs during fuel scarcity or how he looked out for me at shows with updated gist lol. Gone but never forgotten. Continue to RIH Dagrin.
