ItsModella:
Exactly. He's screams a lot in his songs. While Dagrin was razz, he still maintained this coolness but Olamide sometimes sounds like he needs a tranquilizer to calm him down.

Dagrin jare. Olamide doesn't even come close.

Nice. Confirm. Dagrin was like a Yoruba version of 50 cent. He could always control his tempo. I'll give it to dagrin.

ojoawo: Cos of this thread, had to move a playlist of dagrin's over 30 songs from my system to my ipod and it is on replay since and still I don't see the depth in his lyricism... Can anyone post his best lyrical effort here?

Listen to thank you with omawumi, dem go dey hala hala,, iwofa as le nu with big bigiano and of cos, champion

People who know next to nothing about music are commenting.

I think Olamide still has to work on his punch lines, use of metaphors, multies, flow, delivery and LYRICS.

Olamide should listen to Ghetto Dreams, Thank God, Kowale and Democracy; and learn to tell stories.

haba comparing dagrin to olamide...na shity argument dagrin:tupac olamide:lil wayne both are good...but dagrins lyrics are (deep lyrics) for those that understand rap...and circles around his real life experiences.
olamide i never liked him @ first cos of his aruwho.he rhymes aint deep.unpredictable.colorful.amusing.humourous.To some people thats its music.
i am more of a future reference rhyming genius(dagrin) than d polongo rap of olamide..

chucky234: Which acceptance are you talking about English master, Dagrin was accepted from day one and his CEO album sold far more than what Olamide's YBNL will ever sell.

Lemme stress @something you guys are missing...
DAGRIN first album STILL ON THE MATTER did sell that much like the CEO album..
Just like Olamide first album which I can't remember now. But his second album is selling like crazy...
For you info all the tracks on CEO album were on point.. Pls go listen to Ghetto dream,Pon Pon Pon,Swags,Thank God,What they Want,File etc were on point, I have all those songs still banging em on my phone..
He pave the way for yoruba rap, if not Dagrin no one will listen to yoruba rap music believe me. If I may asks you were you listening to Lord of Ajasa then? Was it not when dagrin came out wit his style.. He copied nobody. That was when everyone started giving listening hear to yoruba rap..
Please never compare a LEGENG with a LEARNER again... Let him smile like baba fela...
For you info am an igbo guy.. Go listen to ajasa ft dagrin,yq and suspect #Virus or YQ ft Dagrin # e fi mi le see don't lemme write a full note here for you.. Even olamide said he was is mentor..
Why una dey drag matter like dis... RiP dagrin,,,

drexx: I don't speak or understand yoruba but as a music freak, I would choose Olamide ahead of Dagrin. And so would majority of peeps like me who are not yoruba. I think Dagrin was more of a local yoruba act who did his music for only the yoruba audience. But in as much as Olamide is a yoruba rapper, it is easy for non yorubas to get along with him cos he throws a bit of English into his rap. Believe me Dagrin doesn't have acceptance in non yoruba parts of Nigeria. I travel a lot and I know what am saying. I have attended Dagrin's and Olamide's shows in Benin City. Where Dagrin struggled to move the crowd, Olamide scattered the show and about three girls fainted. For versatility and acceptability Olamide wins
u spit trash..Dagrin made me understand yoruba beta.

First of all d op is stupid to bring up dis suggestion,am sure he/she is an hypocrite,now to d matter,d fact is dat u cant compare both,dou dey both repesent d street wit d same indigenious style,both lyrically tight,as an artiste u deliver what u c and feel,and both av been succesful wit dat,and for dos sayn olamide wudnt av been recognise if dagrin was alive dats rubish,look at jay z and kanye,r kelly and usher,sunny ade and obey,even when d fuji icon barrister was alive d lyks of k1,paso and osupa did their tin,if u're good at what u do and with gods backing nothin can stop u,olamide alwys givs kudos to dagrin,dagrin will do d same if he was alive,dagrin was just getting started and wit dat short tym look at d collabo and top artist he had at his control,now olamide is doing it,everytin is abt tym,i lov both artiste and i respect dem,dagrin is funny,olamide is cunning,both hardcore,i tink longevity owns d game,consistency tins,jayz've been doing it since wayback b4 kanye came,dey both respect and love each oda,jay z talks luxuries,fame,kanye expoit everytin around him,yet dey are both rappers,olamide and dagrin rocks i wudnt choose one over one,but personally i lov dagrin but musically i lov both,dagrin is calm like 50 cent on d mic,olamiide is lyk eminem,dey are both gods

dont understand why people are using ceo album to judge dagrin.he is far more than that.go listen to his still on d matter album or d rap he did in igbo titled aye nlo ni auchi or better still his compilations the best of dagrin.seems alot of guys here ve short memories.olamide studied dagrins album and success and even borrowed some few words and lines to produce ybnl.dont let us argue for argueing sake,lets be real and give honour to whom honour is due.its just like comparing nice and isolate.they are both good but nice is d king and he made yoruba hiphop popular.lord of ajasa was raping then but dagrin invented the yoruba street hop rap.he was so good all artiste did collabo with him to promote thier album.almost all dagrins song became instant hit.he did collabo with rugged man,with bigiano,with konga,with oritshe femi,with omawumi,with fresh,with yq,with nino,with mi&naeto c,with terry g.with kenny st.brown.d list is endless.ve u guys forgotten so soon how he ruled d airwaves 3yrs back.dagrin invented yoruba street hop and u can get beta dan d king himself.u can only try.
