Indigenous Nigerian artist, Olanipekun  Olatubosun, popularly known as Trod, has addressed claims of siphoning the royalties linked to the songs of late rapper, Dagrin.

Naija News recalls that Dagrin’s mother had recently asked for financial aid from Nigerians.

In a viral video, the aged woman disclosed that she now sells on the street to make a living.

Reacting to the trending video, Nigerians called out Trod, who is a step-brother to the late rapper, and accused him of profiting from Dagrin’s song proceeds while his family struggled.

Responding to the allegation on his official Twitter handle, Trod claimed that he is unaware of any income linked with Dagrin’s songs.

He urged whoever has been receiving royalties from the late rapper’s song to come out.

He tweeted: “I dunno shit about Grins Royalties. The person who has been getting paid for 13 years should come out. DMCE whatever.”

Naija News recalls that Dagrin died on the 22nd of April 2010 after he was involved in a ghastly motor accident in Lagos.

Late rapper, Dagrin’s mother has cried out to Nigerians for financial assistance.

In a video making the rounds on social media, the aged woman is seen selling food by the roadside.

She, however, revealed that the business is too stressful due to her age and the money generated is not enough to sustain her family.

She stated that she moves away from certain locations when trying to fend for herself because some people might recognize her.

The late rapper’s mother said some people have urged her to reach out to Afrobeats Superstars, Davido, or Olamide for help, but they are children to her and she can’t go to beg them.

The elderly woman lamented about being poor and said her family needs suitable accommodation. She begged Nigerians to raise money for her so that she can start a business.

She said, “Please I am poor and I want Nigerians to come and help me, I currently sell food by the roadside but the stress is too much and I am getting old.

“I need accommodation, please Nigerians I need like N3Million – N5Million, I can’t go and beg Rapper Olamide for money because it is somehow as if he is not an Elder, I look at him like a son.”
