‘Sallah will not be same without you’ – Singer Lami Philips pens late Sound Sultan
Nigerian singer and songwriter, Lami Philips is yet to get over the shocking death of Rapper, Olanrewaju Fasasi, popularly known as Sound Sultan, who died on Sunday July 11, 2021 of Angioimmunoblastic T- Cell Lymphoma in the United States of America.
For Philips, Sound Sultan was indeed an angel on earth and there are certain lessons to be picked from the lifetime of the music star.
Lami Philips also lamented that Muslim Sallah ( Eid al-Fitr) will not remain the same because of his kind gestures.
She said: “I’ll be a year soon..A year of seeing you in everyone wearing a hat. A year of needing advice and my reflexes wanting to dial your number… A year of Sallah now being bitter sweet because Chichi won’t be serving her trusted meat while you crack everyone up…
A year of not wishing I could bring you back for Chichi and the kids. A year of hearing your voice in my heart when the world gets too cold and vile. A year of trying to comprehend how your genius never made you a proud person.. never let you forget grace and love .#1yrSoundSultan. A year of thanking God I was your beloved sister. A year of being scared to attempt finishing our silly song. A year of still not understanding how it’s you I feel this grief for. A year of of why, how… and “I wish” A year. Ko ye mi.. sugbon o ye Oluwa.”
Sound Sultan lost his battle with cancer at the early hours of the fateful day. He was peacefully buried according to Muslim rites and tradition.
Sound Sultan was buried in New Jersey, USA in the presence of his grieving wife and siblings.
