SUMMARY ABOUT THE MOVIE
The Movie starts with the tragic accident scene where the young rap artiste DAGRIN crashes headlong into a stationary trailer. As he was rushed to the hospital by the police , we saw the different reactions to the tragic news by Nigerians and also see some of the drama at the hospital where doctors battled for 7 days to save the life of the young rapper before he died.
From the hospital scene, we are taken through the different stages in the life of DAGRIN as he contended with his family, his friends, the school system and contemporaries for slef actualisation through his unique brand of music. The movie explores his truamatic school life , the decision to go into music fully and many rejections from record promoters.
*Sad* the movie also develops a parallel level with his growth as a musician , the love angle with his girlfriend DORIS S. ADEMINOKAN (Chi chi ) . The plot line which takes the viewer through the differenet stages of the realtionship all the way to his heart breaking conclusion .. *sigh* . All in all, the biopic is a very dramatic, presentation of DAGRIN as many people never even knew him *crying*
