Video: Remembering DA GRIN Five Years Later

Da Grin TributeIt is now five years since the rap king, Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun, Dagrin, died, yet his fame and name never at any time disappeared in Nigeria’s rap game. Reminiscing on his death reminds us of his bravery and guts in the use and commands of language which he best displayed in his last song ‘If I die”.

Grin as popularly called by some of his followers clearly stated his abhorrence for pretentious tears and developed his verse to tell of himself as a man who wanted his best and not self-pity.

Today, we celebrate him as a legend and not a loss as HipTV brings you Nigerian entertainers reactions 5 years on. ~Hip TV
