Just yesterday I thought about you and hoped you were doing better but seeing the news today hit me the hardest. It’s really hard to believe the news but looks like it is true 😞
Today I choose to celebrate you for the greatness that was Sound Sultan, you’ve left such a mark with me as an artiste and a person, and the world at large. I was privileged to work with you on both Jungle Story and Motherland remix, honestly it was a dream come true and I respected you even more for being such a humble soul.
The music you made was special and listening to you as a kid was such an inspiration. You’ll always be an inspiration to me and more, your legacy will live forever, we will make sure of that.
Rest on Sultan 💔
