Bigmaxx: How Dagrin Influenced My Career


Fast-rising indigenous rapper, Bigmaxx, whose real name is Makanjuola Adigun Oluwaseun is a performing and recording artiste who grew up in the northern part of Nigeria.  He was born in Oyo State and graduated with B.TEC degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State.

 Bigmaxx began his professional career as an indigenous rapper many years ago and he has just released his official single titled ‘Lewon’.

In a recent chat, Bigmaxx said the late rapper, Dagrin was a big influence on him, saying “Dagrin really opened the way for many rappers like myself and several others. Truth is that Dagrin influenced a lot of indigenous rappers we have today and I’m just one of the many.”

Asked if he copies the late rapper’s style, Bigmaxx said, “Not at all; my sound is quite unique and different, though I rap in Yoruba language but I also leverage on the trending ‘Trap music’ sound and you can feel it from my sound and production.”

Over time, Bigmaxx has worked with popular pop stars like Vector, Phenom, Ill Bliss, Cynthia Morgan, Phyno, Tha Suspect and others.
