Sound Sultan was role model to many — Atiku

Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Sunday described the late rapper Sound Sultan as a role model to many in the entertainment industry.

Atiku stated this in a post on social media hours after the rapper’s death was announced by his family.

The former number two citizen also described Sound Sultan born Olanrewaju Fasasi as a devout man of faith and family.

“In the short time Olanrewaju Fasasi, fondly known as Sound Sultan, spent on this side of the divide, he was a role model to many in the world of entertainment. May the devout man of faith and family Rest In Peace. I pray Allah SWT comforts his bereaved family and friends. Amen,” said Atiku.

Sound Sultan died at the age of 44 after battling Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma.

The disease is a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which is a group of related malignancies (cancers) that affect the lymphatic system (lymphomas).

He is survived by his wife Farida, three children and his siblings.
