YQ – Hero’s Smile (Tribute To Dagrin) @iam_YQ

“Veni, Vidi, Vici” translated as “I
came; I saw; I conquered” is a Latin
phrase which reportedly originates
from a letter that Julius Caesar
wrote to the Roman Senate after
achieving victory in his short war
against Pharnaces II of Pontus.
We are certain that if Dagrin were
alive today, those same words will
summarize his letter to us (his
family, friends, fans, the music
industry, the entire country, Africa
and the diaspora) because he was
VICTORIOUS despite the number of
years he spent with us.
HERO’S SMILE is yet another tribute
song by YQ, who was not just
Dagrin’s bosom friend but also
collaborated with him dishing to us
the ever-green EFIMILE.
‘Hero’s Smile’ which sounds
different from the gifted artiste’s
recent releases (Tear Rubber &
Nawo Nawo) reminds us that
legends don’t die but live forever. 5
years after, we are still celebrating
the greatest proponent of the
indigenous rap music genre,
Dagrin. YQ also dedicates this song
to all other celebrities, family
members and friends who left us
too soon.
We eulogise the legendary Oladapo
Olaitan Olaonipekun (Dagrin) with
these lines from A.E. Housman’s
poem ‘To an Athlete Dying Young’
