He always showed up
Babyface shared a video of the late singer, who was introduced on stage by veteran actor, RMD, at his show in 2006 performing some of his popular numbers.
Taking to the caption, he disclosed that a constant thing Sound Sultan did for everyone he knew was to show up for them.
According to the TV host, during the times when comedy shows had no money to pay artistes, the late singer showed up for them to support their shows without collecting a dime.
He said that this was something the singer did for him over and over again and noted that his deeds as a good man will live on after him.
“RMD @mofedamijo introduces Sound Sultan on stage (MUSON CENTRE, LAGOS 2006). That’s what you need to understand about Sound Sultan: HE ALWAYS SHOWED! I think most of my comedy contemporaries will bear witness to the fact that he always showed up to support our shows. This was at the dawn of comedy shows and concerts in Nigeria when we had no money to give each other or to the featured musicians for appearing at our shows.”
