Late Nigerian rapper, Olaitan Olanipekun, popularly known as ‘DaGrin‘, has become a trending topic on social media again. This time, DaGrin’s photo has been released in Sierra Leone as part of those wanted by the police for participating in a protest “against the government”.
A popular photo of him carrying a gun was spotted among the clusters of photos on a wanted list.
A Twitter user named @Jeen_Yous shared the news online, and it soon became a trending topic for Nigerians.
In his caption, he wrote:
“The Sierra Leone Police release Pictures of wanted people who were part of the violent protest last week and late Nigerian rapper Dagrin is one of them”.
Not long after the post went viral online, it got people talking as they wondered how someone who had been dead for 12 years could resurface and be accused of joining a violent protest just last week.
Nigerians react as late DaGrin’s photo is included in Sierra Leone’s police wanted list.
Reaction to what some people had to say;
This is coming 12 years after the death of the Pon Pon Pon singer who was involved in a car crash in 2010.
DaGrin’s death remains one of the biggest tragedies in the Nigerian music industry.
