Nigerian Urban music has suffered it’s own fair share of celebrity deaths, which has shaken the industry to it’s embers on certain occasions most likely when it is a widely known superstar who has passed away, however there are other Nigerian Artistes who have passed with little or no recognition or remembrance.While marking the 5th anniversary of the passing of Yoruba Rapper Da Grin on 22nd April, I thought it was imperative to compile an extensive list of contemporary Nigerian Artistes who are deceased ( from 1999 till date ) for the purpose of documentation and to somehow keep their memories alive.
