Many believed the rapper owe his current success to the
late Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun, also known as Dagrin, an award winning Nigerian rapper from Ogun state, who took indigenous rap to mainstream entertainment before his tragic death by autocrash in April 2010.
Speaking with Olisa in The Truth, Olamide says he never met Da Grin.
“No, not at all, I never got to meet Dagrin at all. Actually, Dagrin did pave the way for people like me,’ he said.
He also gave props to Lord of Ajasa for paving way alongside Da Grin “Lord of Ajasa paved the way as well. This whole thing is a movement and it has to keep going on. Every new set of artistes that come out will pave way for the next generation,” he added.
