Rapper CDQ is one of the promising rappers in the country.

The newcomer who raps mostly in his mother tongue Yoruba exclusively revealed to Pulse that it was the late Dagrin who influenced him to start rapping in Yoruba.

CDQ who was part of the WAPI circuit in 2008 and met acts such as M.I, Vector, C-Jay, Bez, revealed he met Dagrin in 2008.

According to him he said the late rapper told him he loved his style but suggested to him to rap in Yoruba if he wanted more impact.

"I gave it a thought. As a matter of fact Dagrin actually contributed to most of my Yoruba indigenous rap style. I gave it a shot and it is working for me" admitted the 'Indomie' rapper.

Dagrin and CDQ's story does not end there. He told Pulse that Dagrin called him up, and introduced him to producer Sossick. He disclosed that Dagrin wanted him to be a part of the Classick Tunes group.

Unfortunately it did not work out as Dagrin later died in 2010.

CDQ is working on a new mixtape presently and said some of his songs will be delivered in English.
