‘Sallah can never be same again without you’ – Lami Philips

‘Sallah can never be same again without you’ were the words of Nigeria singer and songwriter Lami Philips as he remembers his late friend Sound Sultan after almost a year after.

Recall that the singer and rapper Olanrewaju Fasasi, popularly
known as Sound Sultan, gave up the ghost on the 11the day of the month of July in the year, 2021 having suffered from Angioimmunoblastic T- Cell Lymphoma.


For Philips, Sound Sultan was a rare gem noting that Muslim Sallah will never for once remain the same because of his kind gestures.

In her words, ’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.” she added.
