Meet Dagrin

Born on October 25, 1987, Dagrin was known for rapping in his native language, Yoruba, although there are arguments in some quarters as to who originally started this style of rap between him and Lord of Ajasa.

In 2010, his album C.E.O., meaning Chief Executive Omo’ta, won the Hip Hop world Award for a best rap album.

A song off the album contained lyrics where the singer predicted his death, titled ‘If I Die’, saw the rapper feeling sombre and calling on his fans not to cry for him if he died.

“If I die make you no cry for me,” the lyrics went.
