Was Dagrin driving under the influence of alcohol on the fateful day? He was on the phone to his people at home and there was no report of him sounding high…he may not have been drunk after all.
Talking about being on the phone – we all know what traffic rule says about taking calls while driving. Did he disobey this rule?
It was the wee hours of the morning and there were not a lot of cars on the road but one stationary truck on the road without ‘C’-Caution is a disaster waiting to occur.
The driver of the said truck was stopped by police officers and was negotiating a request of N12, 000 by the officers on duty. Now, even if Dagrin had not run into the stationary truck, someone else could have. The police should have known better than stopping a truckload of cement on the not-so-wide road of Lagos. Perhaps the accident wouldn’t have been as bad as that. Plus, if Dagrin was on the high side, he could assumed that the truck was in motion, especially because there was no sign to indicate.
We have many problems in our country and even at 50; we can’t help but to keep praying for Nigeria. We lack medical infrastructure and our hospitals still pay less attention to emergencies. When an accident victim is rushed to the hospital, shouldn’t he have been checked thoroughly for internal bleeding? What level of examination was conducted after and while he was under intensive care? Did the hospital have the right facilities to manage an accident of such magnitude?
Looking at the flow of information concerning rapper’s accident, from when news of the accident broke, to the first rumour of his demise, we can deduce that there was no professional publicist in place, to manage the information process. It must have taken a smart and concerned media person to intervene on behalf of his management. An instance is his manager stuttering and mincing words in an interview on television. The best approach would have been for his management to make an official release about the rapper’s accident and update the public on what they needed to know from time to time. This would have gone a long way to avert the initial false stories.
Looking at the damaged car, you can only imagine the level of ‘bang’ that must have ensued on that day. Should we be worried about the strength of that car (Nissan Maxima) or was that a proof of the level of speed our darling Dagrin was driving?
Why did Dagrin do a song about “His Death” as suggested by his unreleased single titled “If I Die”? Did he see this coming?
Dagrin was climbing to the peak of his career after a poor debut in 2006; why did he have to die at a time when he was about to enjoy the fruit of his labour?
At the end of the day, there are so many questions surrounding Dagrin’s sudden demise, but there are little or no answers.
