Musician 2baba (2face Idibia) has described the death of his colleague and close friend Sound Sultan as so unreal.

The 45-year-old stated this in an Instagram post on Tuesday, two days after the latter died of throat cancer in the United States of America.

2face, whose initial public reaction was a black image posted on Sunday with the word “No”, said he couldn’t bring himself to write about Sound Sultan’s death.

“Rest well.

“Till we meet again my dear friend and brother.

“Still so unreal.

“Will never stop celebrating you.

“I promise you your fam will be safe and good,” he wrote.

The singer who on several occasions declared Sound Sultan as his best friend thanked the deceased for “the blessings that you represented in my life.”

Born Olanrewaju Fasasi, Sound Sultan is survived by his wife Farida, three children and siblings including singer Baba Dee.

He was buried in the US on Sunday according to Islamic rites.
