Governor Sanwo-Olu Mourns Sound Sultan



Sound Sultan, A Unique Loss To Industry – CIG -Crystal News

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday condoled with the Fasasi family and the Nigerian entertainment industry on the death of Olanrewaju Fasasi, popularly known as Sound Sultan.

Sound Sultan, a renowned rapper, singer, and songwriter died on Sunday at age 44 and was buried in the U.S. in accordance with Islamic injunctions.

Sanwo-Olu, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, expressed shock over the death of the singer.

He said Fasasi’s demise was painful and a great loss to the deceased family, the Nigerian music industry, and the country as a whole.

The governor urged the deceased family, friends, associates, fans, and entertainment practitioners to take the death of Sound Sultan as an act of God.

”Sound Sultan’s death is painful. He was a bundle of talent who used his God-given gift to advance the course of mankind. His music, artistry, and interest in sports were all donated at every point for the development of humanity.

”No doubt, the death of a loved one is usually painful because it is irreparable but we must always take solace in God, especially if the deceased had lived a good and fulfilled life, just like the late Olanrewaju Fasasi.

”He was a celebrated singer, comedian, rapper, songwriter, and actor during his lifetime,” he said.

Sanwo-Olu said that Sound Sultan would be missed by his family, friends, fans, and the Nigerian entertainment industry, as one of the pacesetters of modern hip hop music in Nigeria.

He said the musician was notable for using his music to speak against poverty, corruption, bad governance, and societal ills in Nigeria.

The governor said his death had left a vacuum that would take some time to be filled.

”I sympathize with Sound Sultan’s widow, children, siblings, family, fans, and colleagues.

”I pray that God will grant the late Olanrewaju Fasasi eternal rest and grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he said.

Maria And Pere Identified As BBNaija WildCards-Crystal News

Maria and Pere have been revealed as the two wildcards in the Big Brother Naija season 6

Crystal News recalls that on Sunday, shortly after the female housemates were introduced, Ebuka announced that there are two wildcards among the twenty-two housemates.

Ebuka then announced that the wildcards will be revealed to the viewers today by 3 pm in a special diary session.

Today, Thursday, July 29 in the diary session, it was revealed that Maria and Pere are the wildcards.

According to Maria, she feels she’s doing a great job but does not feel comfortable lying about it.

She is a little bit sure that the housemates will not be able to figure her out.

Prior to the announcement on Sunday, Pere and Maria had thought there is only one wildcard and will have to wait till the Sunday night eviction to find out about the other person.

However, they both guessed each other when Big Brother asked if they could guess who the other wildcard is.

Big Brother had asked the housemates to bond for two weeks and find out who the wildcards were.

If the housemates had been able to identify who they were, the wildcards would have been automatically evicted on Sunday night.

On the other hand, failure to identify the wildcards means they will remain in the show, play for the money and have exclusive nomination privilege.

Who Are BBNaija Wildcards

Wildcard refers to a player or team that has not qualified for a competition but is allowed to take part, at the organizers’ discretion, after all the regular places have been taken.
