Stories of Dagrin you probably haven’t heard before

    Today marks ten years since we lost the great indigenous rapper, Dagrin who is credited with being the reason why Yoruba rap culture is thriving.


    Fans of the “Pon Pon” crooner took to social media to celebrate the rapper whose impact in the music industry won’t be forgotten.

    Celebrities and friends also weren’t left out and they took to Twitter to share fond and in some cases, hilarious stories of Dagrin.

    We at Mp3bullet.ng have decided to compile a list of stories of Dagrin as shared by fans and friends.

    • Did you know that Dagrin was pranked two weeks before his death? (I kid you not). The rapper was set up by the Playhouse crew to be pranked in a supermarket where he was accused of buying Hennessey on credit in front of his newfound love. In true Dagrin fashion, the prank was interesting to watch.


    • According to a story shared by a staff of Boomplay Nigeria, Nigerian rapper Loose Kanyon was persuaded by his cousin to do freestyle at Koko Lounge. After he picked the Mic and began to freestyle he was unexpectedly joined by Dagrin and they had a mad ass rap battle, in his words. It was said that the incident gave birth to Waxlyrical, a rap battle for upcoming rappers.

    • Remember when Dagrin tried to convince us that the meaning of Kondo in his song, “Kondo” meant condition but we had formed our meaning of the word.  Well, you can’t fault the man for trying.

    • DJ Neptune revealed that Dagrin wrote and recorded his verse on the remix of his 2010 hit song, “123” and M.I Abaga made that collaboration happen.

    • Davido’s manager, Asa Asika shared how Dagrin once pulled to Rehab Club in a suit and when he laughed at the rapper’s dressing and teased him about making the money he always rapped about, Dagrin replied that he was preparing for the money.

    • Asa Asika also shared how Dagrin once called out a DJ who didn’t play any of his songs in a hangout spot they went to.

    • Did you know that the beat for dagrin hit song, “Pon Pon” was rejected by Banky W and Ruggedman? This was revealed by Sossick the producer who made the beat and the same person who produced Dagrin’s “CEO” album.

    In honor and celebration of a Rap God who was taken away from the earth by death way too soon, we will leave this video tribute by Nigeria Allstars for you to enjoy.
