Nigerian artiste, Trod, has remembered his late brother, Oladapo Olaonipekun alias Dagrin, almost two decades after he passed away.
He took to his Twitter account on Friday, January 26, and to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of Dagrin’s debut album, Chief Executive Omoita (C.E.O).
Trod shared the album cover with the caption; “15 years today. C.E.O 🕊️”

In some earlier posts, he talked about how life can be rough and can teach people lessons through challenging experiences.
“You no go understand life until e touch you. 2023, I’m glad I survived 🙏🏾…. Nobody send my Papa, I carry my cross for my head like Dada !” Trod wrote.
Dagrin died 13 years ago, on April 22, 2010, after being involved in an auto accident.
Meanwhile, CorrectNG reported last year that Dagrin’s mother cried out for help, saying that she has been living in a pitiable condition.
The old woman said she was selling food by the roadside but it is very stressful due to her age and the money generated is not enough to sustain her family.
She lamented about being poor and said her family needs a suitable accommodation. The distraught woman begged for Nigerians to raise between N3million to N5million so that she can start a business.
Dagrin’s mum also explained that she cannot go and beg rap star, Olamide for money because she sees him as a son and it feels wrong.
“Please I am poor and I want Nigerians to come and help me, I currently sell food by the roadside but the stress is too much and I am getting really old.
I need accommodation, please Nigerians I need like N3Million – N5Million, I can’t go and beg Rapper Olamide for money because it is somehow as he is not an Elder, I look at him like a son,” she said.
