Farida, the wife of late Sound Sultan broke down in tears at his graveyard refusing to bury him when asked to pour sand on his grave.
Yesterday, the late Sound Sultan was laid to rest according to the Muslim religion, and his wife Farida was expected to perform some rites at the graveyard before he is buried but then refused to do that because of the pain.
Farida in a video sighted online was heard crying saying she doesn’t want to bury her late husband Sound Sultan as the pain she is going through over his death is so unbearable that she doesn’t have the courage to bury him.
Farida after refusing to bury Sound Sultan wasn’t forced by the family and friends who went with her to the graveyard but rather was taken away from there for the rite to be performed by another person before burying him.
Sound Sultan died yesterday after battling throat cancer for a while and his death has come as a shock to a lot of people because he was one of the purest hearts in the industry and never smoked nor drunk alcohol.
Sound Sultan died a few days after the death of Obama DMW and this is a heavy blow to Nigerians especially those in the entertainment industry because he was one of the few who contributed immensely to its growth.
Veteran Nigerian musician, Olanrewaju Fasasi, professionally called Sound Sultan was laid to rest in the United States after his sudden death.
Sound Sultan reportedly died of Lymphoma, throat cancer and he was 44 years old and survived by a wife and three children.
His wife, Farida uncontrollably wailed at the burial ceremony as it is obvious she is the hardest hit person as far as the loss is concerned and a video that captures some emotional moments from the scene that shows top Nigerian rapper, Olamide consoling Farida.
Nigerians have reacted to his act and they are really impressed by the gesture of the YBNL Records CEO and have lauded him for his selfless act as they pointed to the fact that Olamide has not posted a photo to show that he was at the funeral but he is seen doing something very important and worthy in private as far as mourning the dead is concerned.
Some Instagram users averred that he does not talk but acts and they alluded that he is different.
