Trod has faced criticism from certain social media users who argue that as Dagrin’s brother, he should have knowledge of the music royalties and take responsibility for their late mother.
Trod, the Nigerian singer and brother of the late rapper Dagrin, has refuted accusations of misappropriating royalties from his brother’s music. The denial comes after a video emerged in which Dagrin’s mother, who is also Trod’s stepmother, appealed to Nigerians for financial support.

The living conditions of Dagrin’s mother have generated concern among Nigerians, prompting questions about the recipients of royalties from the late rapper’s songs since his untimely death. This has led to criticism from certain social media users who believe that Trod, as Dagrin’s brother, should be aware of the royalties and take responsibility for the welfare of their late mother.
Trod has responded to the accusations by posting a statement on his official Twitter page, asserting that he has no knowledge of the royalties. He specifically mentioned Digital Music and Commerce Exchange Limited (DMCE), the organization he claimed has been receiving the royalties since 2010, and challenged them to step forward.
Trod accompanied his statement with a screenshot showing Dagrin’s songs available on a streaming platform. He expressed his lack of involvement, stating, “I don’t know anything about Grin’s royalties… The person who has been getting paid for 13 years should come out. DMCE, whatever?!”
