Nigerian rapper, YQ has rebuked the media for leaving out Dagrin from the decade list in December 2019
He questioned the general public, stating that the media was unfair to have left Dagrin out of the series of publications released for the best music/artistes of the decade
He said, “I am not trying to start any dram, I’m just going to say I saw a list or a compilation of 50 best artistes of the decade and Dadrin’s name is not there. In 2009, he was pumping, in 2010 he passed on but his name is still there. Every year he’s being celebrated and I don’t see any reason why he shouldn’t be in that kind of list.
I am not saying everybody that’s there don’t deserved to be there, I respect everybody.When I’m out partying and they play anybody song I dance to it, I vibe to it because that’s part of the movement.
“There has to be that respect. Protect the legacy. I don’t know what you want to say, it’s just like compiling a list of rappers of all time and 2pac and Biggie are not there because they are no more, Common! Let’s try. If you want to argue, just tell me the reason why Dagrin is not supposed to be there. I am not trying to start a drama, I’m just trying to protect the legacy and that’s what I have to do. I know I’m doing the right thing. If you feel this offends you in any way, my apologies, but this is what I have to do, forget about my own side now, we will come to that”.
Dagrin and YQ were friends. In 2009, he released his breakthrough single ‘E Fi Mi Le” featuring Dagrin.
Dagrin died after complications from a ghastly car crash on April 22, 2010.

No offense to @notjustok and all the blogs that put that list up on their platforms. I’m just doing what i gotta do. # #legends @diddy gave him a shout out when there was no Instagram. @realholidaystyles was on the remix of “if i die” His freestyle on @djjimmyjatt jump off is the best till date. He was among top 30 most searched names on google worldwide in 2010. Many more records….. What else do y’all need to respect his Legacy? #DagrinLivesOn. 🙏🏽✊🏽 #DagrinLivesOn #RespectTheDagrinLegacy
