Six popular songs of Sound Sultan

Olanrewaju Fasasi, Nigerian singer popularly known as Sound Sultan, has died at the age of 44.

The rapper, songwriter, actor, comedian and recording artiste had a great impact on the Nigerian entertainment sector.

Known for his socio-conscious messages, his songs were in line with recent happenings in the country, a trait that can be linked to the Music Icon Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

Fans of the late Sound Sultan are currently mourning him.

Below are some of his popular tracks:

The classic, which was a street anthem in 2000, is highly regarded till date. Loved by kids and their parents alike, “Mr teacher” teaches his students mathematics in a conscious way. The track brought Sound sultan into limelight.

The “Jagbajantis” crooner dedicated this song to “all his brothers wey don ja comot for naija”. He adds “no matter where you go, make you no forget about area!”. This is sound sultan telling you “there’s no place like home”.

This is a remake of Fela’s classic. It’s a crazy world and the streets are truly wild!

The track is a narrative on the state of the nation with thought-provoking and insightful lyrics. Comparing Nigeria to a jungle, Sound Sultan sang a blend of Pidgin and English, “some dey work all the work, some chop till belle full”

In the song featuring 2face Idibia and W4, Sound Sultan said “one day, the bush meat go catch the hunter” with it’s popular line “Eba mi ki ole”

Released in 2010, this conscious single titled “2010″ (Light Up) featuring M.I Abaga talks about the fake promises made by the government to provide electricity by 2010.

He is no more but his sounds will remain forever.
