Saturday was a bit rough for the Nigerian entertainment industry…
Saturday marked the 7th year rapper, Dagrin passed on and conversations went from the circumstances surrounding his death in 2010, his brilliant rap offerings, the forgotten state of his grave and even his legacy.
While we mused on this, the news of veteran Nollywood actor, Olumide Bakare‘s death took over the space. He passed away in the early hours of Saturday after over a year-long battle with heart disease and respiratory issues.
