Since Dagrin’s demise on April 22, 2010, comments have been trailing the shocking and avoidable death that took away the life of the then foremost indigenous rapper.
As the tradition has been, remembering Dagrin, Yakky, a friend of the late rapper, who featured him in a song “Gbadun You”, reflected on his relationshtip with the Pon pon pon crooner.
Speaking in an interview on Sunday, Yakky described Dagrin as a “rare raw talent”, who will be difficult to replace.
“My relationship with Dagrin dates back to 2009. That same period, I featured him in a song Gbadun you. He was a true friend, who wanted growth for his friends. He was the one who advised me to be a make-up artiste, while we were shooting the video of his song Pon pon pon. He would always tell me, Yakky, do it like this, Yakky, try it this way. Very painful he died so early.
Reacting to the controversy trailing his collaboration with Dagrin, Yakky disclosed that he had to remix his song with Dagrin, featuring GreyC, Ayoola, Pepenazi, and retitled Adunni, not to leverage on it for stardom but “due to repeated dreams, calling for it”.
He however, called on all stakeholders in the entertainment industry to endeavour to keep the memory of Dagrin alive.
“Dagrin was very creative and hardworking and if he were to be alive, he would have made Nigeria very proud. For such a creative, talented star, we all in the entertainment industry should find a way to immortalise him,” Yakky said.
Lending his voice to the credibility of immortalising Dagrin, Nigerian-born Chicago based artist, Temi Yakubu, popularly known as Fresh, described Dagrin as an enigma, that died at a time the Nigerian entertainment sector needed him most. He shared his experience working on the song Beremole featuring Dagrin.
“I was thrilled by Dagrin’s intelligence when we met. He was thorough. His death threw me off”.
In the same vein, Producer Cool Breeze, said Dagrin’s death is still shocking.
“We had an appointment for the next day. Hearing the news of his death was quite unbelievable,” he said.
Born Olaitan Olaonipekun, Dagrin died on Thursday, April 22, 2010, eight days after his car ran into a stationary truck in front of Alakara Police Station, off Agege Motor Road, Mushin, Lagos. He was buried on Friday, April 30, 2010. He was 26 years old.

You Don’t Need to Beat a Woman to Punish Her, Just Do These Three Things
No matter how much a man and a woman love themselves, there is still a possibility of having misunderstandings.
In fact, what keeps most relationships and marriages together is the ability to settle problems not really because there are no problems.
Women are very dramatic creatures, if you’re not creatively smart as a guy, they can make you move mad to the extent that you’d want to tear them slap. Yes! Women can be that annoying and provocative.
In today’s world, only weak and dumb men hit their women. Instead of beating a woman, there are other ways you can punish her and it will even get to her more than using violence.
Below Are The Ways You Can Punish You Woman Without Hitting Her:-
1. Taking Away Your Attention
Firstly, what is attention, being attentive is simply our way to show our partner we care and make them feel important and special, when a man doesn’t create time for their woman it hurts them.
If you’re not been caring to them anymore, or you stop giving them attention all of a sudden.
These things hurt most women and in most cases, they are the ones who will do everything to get your attention back.
2. Deny Her Some Things
This is one of the ways you can punish a woman. Denying her certain things that you normally give her for her own benefit will make her realize her mistakes.
You can decide not to give her money to do her own hair or to buy cloth, depending on what she asked you or what you normally do for her.
This is not saying that you should deny your responsibility as a man. Ensure you provide food for the family and every other thing you are expected to do as a married man.
3. Deny Her Intimacy
In any relationship, intimacy is what keeps the relationship alive. Denying your woman intimacy is another way of letting your woman know what she did was wrong.
If she really wants to be intimate with you, she will apologize and you guys will have apology sex.
These methods are more preferable when you want to punish a woman that offended you. Domestic violence is a crime against womanhood and humanity.
Don’t lay your hands on a woman when you have problems, instead use any of these methods.
Aside from all these, the best way of settling a misunderstanding is through discussion.
If your woman does something that you don’t like, sit her down and tell her what she did you don’t like it instead of you laying your hands on her.
