Popular Nigerian musician, Olanrewaju Fasasi, popularly known as Sound Sultan, has been buried amidst tears on Sunday.
The 44-year-old singer was buried in New Jersey, U.S. on Sunday (the same day he died) according to Islamic rites.
The New Diplomat had reported how he passed away and how he predicted his death through clips on his Instagram page.
Announcing the news of his demise, his relative, Kayode Fasasi, in a statement, had said Sound Sultan passed on after a “hard-fought battle” with the Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
He is survived by a wife, three children and his siblings.
His colleague, Lamboginny, who is now based in the U.S., hosted an Instagram live video showing the burial ceremony of the late Jagbajantis crooner.
The family of the late singer and his friends, were dressed in black outfits as they mourned his sudden passing.
Singer, Olamide, was also spotted at the funeral.
His wife, Farida, was completely inconsolable as she witnessed her husband’s burial.
The mother-of-three was held by two women who comforted her. At a point, she was also spotted laying on her late husband’s coffin while crying bitterly before it was finally lowered into the grave.
