Sound Sultan used his God-given gift for development of humanity – Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has extended his heartfelt condolences to the Fasasi family and the Nigerian entertainment industry on the passage of a renowned rapper, singer, and songwriter, Olanrewaju Fasasi, popularly known as Sound Sultan, who died on Sunday at age 44 and was buried in the United States of America in accordance with Islamic injunctions.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, in a statement issued on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, expressed shock over the death of the singer, saying Fasasi’s demise was painful and a great loss to the deceased family, the Nigerian music industry, and the country as a whole.

The Governor urged the deceased family, friends, associates, fans, and entertainment practitioners to take the death of Sound Sultan as an act of God.

He said: “Sound Sultan’s death is painful. He was a bundle of talents, who used his God-given gift to advance the course of mankind. His music, artistry, and interest in sports were all donated at every point for the development of humanity.”

Sanwo-Olu added that: “No doubt the death of a loved one is usually painful because it is irreparable but we must always take solace in God especially if the deceased had lived a good and fulfilled life, just like the late Olanrewaju Fasasi, who was a celebrated singer, comedian, rapper, songwriter and actor during his lifetime.

“Sound Sultan will be sorely missed by his family, friends, fans, and the Nigerian entertainment industry as one of the pacesetters of modern hip hop music in Nigeria.

“Sound Sultan who was notable for using his music to speak against poverty, corruption, bad governance and societal ills in Nigeria, has left a vacuum that would take some time to be filled”.

“I sympathize with Sound Sultan’s widow, children, siblings, family, fans, and colleagues. I pray that God will grant the late Olanrewaju Fasasi eternal rest and grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
