DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE - The DaGrin story

I’ll probably be highly criticized for doing this. I strongly feel this is the right time to write this and get the word out before we loose more people.

A few weeks ago, Nigeria lost one of its ace rappers DaGrin in a motor accident. In the space of a few years DaGrin had warmed himself into our hearts with his mixture of Yoruba and English rhymes. DaGrin on his way home after a couple of drinks that night, ran his car into a parked trailer on the road in his 2 week old Nissan Maxima. DaGrin’s car was so badly crashed that Doctors said only a miracle could save him as his organs had been badly damaged. DaGrin finally gave up the ghost 2 weeks ago on a Thursday night. Alcohol is said to reduce the human perception rate (the rate at which  you see things happening) by up to 50%. By the time DaGrin saw the trailer ahead of him, it was too late to turn away.

IF DAGRIN DIDN’T HAVE THOSE DRINKS
·         *DaGrin would have performed at the O2 arena in London. All artistes that have performed here have never   had their lives the same again.
·         *DaGrin would have one of three Hip Hop World Awards he was nominated for.
·         *DaGrin would continue to enjoy life in his brand new Nissan and finally begin to enjoy his money he had worked for in the last couple of years.
·         *DaGrin was scheduled to perform at an Etisalat gig in Unilag on the 23rd of April.
·         *DaGrin had a United States Embassy appointment.

So I was watching a rhythm unplugged special on DaGrin a few days ago and DJ Zeez was saying we shouldn’t talk about how he died because that is not what matters.

IT MATTERS OOH. If we do not address the issues that face young Nigerians , I’m afraid Many DaGrins will die before they are even heard on radio. A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE. MA SO PE MI O SO FUNYIN
