Ola Badmus professionally known as Olamus, who is the former manager to late Nigerian rapper Dagrin is dead.

Olamus’ death is coming about 10 years after Dagrin who died in 2010.
Born Olayitan Olanipekun Oladapo, Dagrin’s life had been cut short when he was involved in a ghastly car accident.
His car had run into a stationary truck around 3 am at Mushin in Lagos back in April 2010.
Immediately after the accident, Dagrin was rescued by policemen on patrol who called his manager after finding his number on Dagrin’s last dialled list.
Dagrin was rushed to Tai Solarin private hospital in Mushin and then he was moved to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH.
Unfortunately, a few days later he died.
The doctors had said the hip-hop star died from complications arising from injuries he sustained.
Known for hits such as “Pon Pon Pon,” “Gboro” and “Thank God,” the late hip-hop star was just beginning to make waves in the entertainment industry at the time of his death.
Dagrin had rapped mostly in his native language – Yoruba – and scantly in the English Language. His songs touch upon ethnicity, pride while surviving the streets of Lagos and a hint of criticism elderly people hurls against bad behaviour.
After his death, a film of his life entitled Ghetto Dreamz starring Trybson Dudukoko and Doris Simeon-Ademinokan as his girlfriend was released in April 2011.
