Pray For Sound Sultan Trends As He Is Diagnosed Of Throat Cancer…
#PrayforSoundSultan is the latest trend on every social media platform right about now as the Veteran Nigerian singer Olarenwaju Fasasi popularly known as Sound Sultan is reported to have been diagnosed of Throat Cancer which he is currently being treated for in the United States of America.
The singer who did not disclose his condition to his fans and the general public made the following post some days back via his official Instagram handle @soundsultan, suggestion the rumours are true:
“In the words of Terminator…….. I will be Back.”
Sound Sultan came to lime light in the nineties when he releaded JAGBANJANTIS and MATHEMATICS. His lyrics which reflects happenings in his immediate environment and the society in relation to the everyday lifestyle of an average Nigerian and how they react to bad leadership which has hindered the growth of Nigeria as a nation quickly made him an household name. He was later signed to Kennis Music in the year 2000 where he released 4 great albums ( KPSEEEEEEEW in 2001, TEXTBOOK in 2004, Naija 007 in 2007, and SS4 in 2008 ).
In 2004 while he was still one of the peak musicians in Nigeria, American singer Wyclef Jean visited Africa for a collaboration and quickly loved the sounds of Nigerian musicians so he decided to do a collab with them. 2 Face, Faze, and Sound Sultan got his attention so he hooked them up for a collabo PROUD TO BE AFRICAN, that featured in his October 5th 2004 released album WELCOME TO HAITI CREOLE 101. Sound Sutan found favour with Wyclef Jean cuz he looks like the American singers cousin according to him, so the collaborated in 2 other projects ( KING OF MY COUNTRY in 2009, and BAD PEOPLE in 2012 ).
In the year 2007, he left Kennis Music and formed his own record label NAIJA NINJAS in partnership with his elder brother Baba Dee. They signed 3 artistes KARMA DA RAPPER, GTEY C, SHAWN and BLACKA but their music carreers did not flourish under the label.
In 2010 he released his fifth body of work BACK FROM THE FUTURE under his New record label NAIJA NINJAS. He has since released 3 other albums ( ME MY MOUTH AND EYE in 2012, OUT OF THE BOX 2016, and THE 8TH WONDAH in 2020 ).
His most popular songs includes Jagbanjantis, Mathematics, Area, Motherland, Kokose, Natural Something, Bush Meat, King Of My Country, Very Good Bad Guys, Orobo, and many others.
Our prayers are up for the legend and his family. He shall surely be back as he promised. You got anything to say about this, please comment below. Thanks for reading.
