Monday made it three years Oladapo Olaonipekun popularly known as Dagrin died in an auto crash.
Saturday Beats gathered that three years down the line, the mother of the late rap artiste, Falilat Olaonipekun, is broke. A Blackberry message made the rounds during the week, soliciting for support for the deceased’s mother.
The message stated that as Dagrin was being remembered by fans, his mother should also be put into consideration. The message read, “DAGRIN is ALIVE. Yes in our hearts, he is evergreen.
It has been three years since our loving Dagrin passed on to rest in the Lord! Show Dagrin’s mum some love, drop your widow’s mite in her Acct- First Bank branch Acct- 3046543524 Olaonipekun Oluwakemi Falilat.”
When Saturday Beats got in touch with the late rapper’s manager, Tunde Peter, he said that the broadcast message was authentic and he actually rebroadcasted it when he confirmed its validity.
“Someone sent it to me and as I confirmed that the details are true, I had to rebroadcast it,” he said.
The development is quite shocking because though Dagrin did not reign for more than eight months before his death, he made a lot of money especially from shows. No one doubted the love he had for his mother, especially as he said in various interviews that she stood by him, so one would think his estate would make arrangements for her.
Peters further told Saturday Beats that because of the lack of structure in the music industry, nothing is working for Dagrin’s parents.
He said, “I feel his mum needs help. She claims that and currently she is not doing anything. Nothing is working at all for all these people. Our music industry is just a flop.”
Meanwhile, some artistes showed their love by using the late rapper’s pictures as display pictures on their BBMs and avatar on Twitter. Tonto Dikeh went the extra mile by visiting his graveside and laying a wreath there
