Farida Fasasi, wife to late Nigerian singer, Olarewaju Fasasi, popularly known as Sound Sultan has taken to her Instagram page to celebrate the music legend on his first posthumous birthday.

She posted a video showing her husband in different stages of his life, alongside a captjon that says how much she misses her late husband.

The mother-of-three wrote, “Olarewaju Fasasi ‘Oko Farida’ (Farida’s husband). I miss your cheeky gap-toothed smile. I miss your jokes. I miss waking up to guitar strings. Even more, I miss our inside jokes.

“It’s your birthday today. I’ll forever celebrate all that you’ve been to me. I love you, forever and always.”

Recall that the music icon passed away aged 44 on July 11 after battling Angioimmunoblastic T-cell Lymphoma. He was also buried the same day in the United States, according to Islamic rites.

On October 1, 2021, which was meant to be their 12th marriage anniversary, the music legend’s wife, Farida had also celebrated her husband.

Meanwhile, Nigerian singer, Sheyi Shay, few days after Sound Sultan’s supposed marriage anniversary, had spoken about how the music icon defended her when she started getting trouble in the music industry.

Speaking with media personality, Chude Jidenowo, she referred to the late Sound Sultan as her mentor, bestfriend and ‘small daddy’.

“Sound Sultan teamed me up with Cecil Hammond of Fly Time. Cecil and Sultan brought me to Lagos and I lived with Sultan for about a year. I lived with both him and his wife. He was my mentor, one of my best friends, .We co-wrote songs together. At some point, our relationship became less about music and more about friendship. He was like my ‘small daddy’ kind of. When I started getting into trouble in the industry, he was like my bailout, my defender. He was very close to me and then his wife became my ‘small’ mummy. He was an incredible genius,” she said.
