Nigerian up-coming singer, Trod, the brother of late rapper, Dagrin, took to Twitter to refute claims that he has been siphoning royalties from his brother’s music.
Dagrin tragically passed away in a car accident over 13 years ago, on April 22, 2010.
Trod’s response on social media came after accusations arose suggesting that he was secretly benefitting from the proceeds of Dagrin’s songs while their family struggled.
The allegations gained further traction following a recent video in which the mother of Trod and Dagrin appealed to Nigerians for assistance.
In response to the mounting speculations, Trod explicitly stated on Twitter that he has no knowledge of any royalties associated with Dagrin’s music.
He openly challenged anyone who had been receiving royalties since 2010 to come forward and make themselves known.
”I dunno shiit about Grinns Royalties…… The person who has been getting paid for 13 years should come out. DMCE whatever?”
The claims of Trod benefitting from his late brother’s royalties have sparked controversy and raised concerns about the fair distribution of proceeds generated by Dagrin’s music.
The late rapper, known for his contributions to the Nigerian hip-hop scene, left behind a significant body of work that continues to resonate with fans.
