Furthermore, Dr. Adewale Ayuba, also known as Mr. Johnson, a Nigerian singer, stated that Sound Sultan had a successful career and cared for many new artists. “I dubbed him Mr. Humility, and he treated me as if he were a brother. “He has made his name to become a legend in Nigeria,” he said.
Another musician, Adewale Adepoju, also known as W4, stated that Sound Sultan influenced his career and the Nigerian music industry. “He did almost everything for my career and will always be a part of my story,” the self-proclaimed Sound Sultan protege said.
Among the celebrities who attended the #HonorSoundSultan event were one of Nigeria’s A-list sound engineers, Indomix, RockSteady, AYzee, and others.
The event’s organizers, Emmanuel Davies and Davies Ehimien of Den Visuals stated that the event’s goal was to not only celebrate Sound Sultan but also to reveal to the public the hidden aspects of his life. He was “more than an entertainer; he was the music industry’s sole philanthropist who cared about everyone,” Emmanuel said.
