Comrade Olaonipekun
Last Saturday December 5 was a ceremonious day and date for Comrade Olaniyi Abolaji Olaonipekun, father of the late Oladapo Olaonipekun aka Dagrin,  who happens to be Nigeria’s first Yoruba Indigenous Rapper who died in April 2010 after a ghastly nightly motor accident in Lagos while returning from a private event.
Comrade Olaonipekun was crowned as the Balogun of Alabelapo Land in Itori in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State by the traditional ruler of the land, His Royal Majesty, Oba (Dr.) Adeola Ishau Balogun,
the Olu of Oluke Orile in Itori Ewekoro LGA, Ogun State. The event which started by 11pm was full of traditional celebration and prayers as Comrade Olaniyi Abolaji Olaonipekun was later installed as the Balogun of the land amidst pomp and celebration. Oba (Dr.) Adeola Ishau Balogun later told a teeming crowd of guests and well-wishers while delivering his speech that Comrade Olaonipekun had not only brought development to the land through his notable ventures as a leader but has also contributed to the development of the youth of the community through various idea based activities hence his decision to crown him as the Balogun of Alabelapo land, Itori.
