INSIDERS ALLEGED Popular Rap Artiste, Da grin’s Car was filled with liquor at the time of the accident.
As at the time when the music industry is still praying for the quick recovery of Tunde , a member of Styl Plus who got involved in an auto crash in Abuja few weeks back, another tragic incident happened at the early hours of Wednesday 14th of April, which involved the prolific rapper, Da Grin. The lyricist was said to have been coming from a night studio session when he ran his newly acquired Nissan Ultima into a parked truck in front of Alakara police station in Mushin. As at the time of the accident, Dagrin was left hanging between life and death before he was rescued by policemen on patrol. The policemen reportedly called his manager, Tunde after finding his number on Da Grin’s ‘last dialled’ list. We gathered that Dagrin was immediately rushed to Tai Solarin Hospital in Olosha where he was given first aid treatment before he was later transferred to Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) at Idi Araba in Mushin due to the inapability of T&S Hospital to administer needed treatment.
Witnesses have revealed excluseively to Questionmarkmag.com that contrary to the statement by the manager that Da Grin was coming from a studio session for his upcoming album, he was coming from a friend identified as James. We were further hinted that he got intoxicated during his stay with James over the night before he decided to call it a day. A by stander at the scene of the accident revealed that “he must have been drunk and over-speeding because the truck he rammed his car with has been parked at the front of the police station several hours before the tragedy occur, to buttress my point, when we ran to rescue him after the accident, a bottle of Hennessey was found in the car and the whole car was filled with the all sort of liquor induced odour“. Dagrin was said to be in accompany of his close associates, when the accident occured. The damaged car has since been confiscated at Alakara Police Station in Mushin.
At the early hours of Wednesday, Questionmarkmag.com contacted his manager and he claimed that accident was a minor one and not as brutal as been speculated. “ I don’t know where you actually get this story from at this hour but at the same time we thank God, the accident wasn’t that fatal, he only sustains minor injuries but he’s feeling better now” his manager squealed. An insider who claims anonymity disclosed to us that at the hospital that no one hasn’t been allowed to visit him as his condition implies, “the Doctors say he’s improving, but they have to keep him in ICU until his condition stabilizes. He hasn’t been able to open his eyes or speak since yesterday. I believe they’ll move him from Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to the ward once he comes round”, he quip. It took his management two days to issue a statement. Two days after the fatal accident, a statement was issued by the artiste manager that: Between 2 and 3 am on Wednesday14th of Aril, your favorites indigenous rapper, Olaitan Olanipekun aka Dagrin had car accident along the mushin area of Lagos State. He was on his way back from the studio, where he was recording tracks for his upcoming new album.
