Today is the anniversary of Da Grin‘s untimely passing and his friend YQ has just released a video to commemorate the memory of the bright star whose light dimmed at the height of his success.
Here is the official press release for the video:
Today, it makes exactly a year that late rap legend Olaitan Oladapo Olaonipekun a.k.a Da Grin passed away.
Singer YQ was a very close associate and bosom friend to Da Grin, having risen together from complete oblivion to super-stardom.
In his words: “I miss my friend so much, but the hurt from his demise over the year has transformed to a sense of responsibility, to keep his fire burning and to keep his memories alive.
“So I wanna use this medium to ‘salute’ everyone who has been a part of upholding Da Grin’s legacies and everybody who is celebrating the one year anniversary of his passing away by organising events, dropping videos, documentaries and other materials, and in every other way. So grateful I am.
“Here is my own quota, a video to the song I did to express myself on how I feel with Da Grin’s death and the vacuum his absence has created in my personal life. The song titled “MISS YOU” was produced by Sossick and the video was shot by Patrick Elis.
“On behalf of myself, Storm 360 and 2Koncept Entertainment, I wanna say thanks to you all!”.
