There are fresh reports goin round on the possibility that popular young and once promising star Dagrin was actually drunk on the the day he was involved in the near fatal auto accident that caused his death.
Sources said some insiders had claimed that the rap artiste's car was filled with liquor at the time of the accident.
The tragic incident which happened at the early hours of wednesday the 14th of April had left a long trail of uncertainties.
Dagrin 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. It was 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.
However, contrary to the stories being circulated earlier as to where he was coming from that morning, sources said that he was actually coming from a friend's place 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.
And I ask, where could the associates be then at the time of the accident?
If he was in the company of the associates, why was he the only one in the car?
After the accident, sources said 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. He came out of the crash with cuts and bruises and has a successful operation to close a cut he sustained during the accident. He’s presently in the hospital, where he’s recovering.
However, this is not meant to be as the lad passed on yesterday obviously not making it through this is after being unconscious even after the operation he went through at the Lagos University teaching Hospital (LUTH).
May his soul rest in peace.
