Seasoned Artiste, sports fanatic and entrepreneur, Olanrewaju Fasasi, typically referred to as Sound Sultan, has boasted to be a source of ideas and inspiration to a lot of Nigerian artistes who happen to be big in the music industry today.
The Jagbajantis crooner bragged to Showtime in a recent talk that prior to the likes of Wizkid, D’banj, Timaya, Asa, P-Square amongst others reaching the spotlight, that he mentored, influenced and moulded them in to what they today are, which makes them his children in the Nigerian music industry.
“So many artistes that are big now, when they were budding artistes I inspired and motivated them. From P-Square to Wizkid, Dbanj, Timaya, Asa, and all the other guys”, he bragged.
Sound Sultan continued on to brag that their present-day stardom does not prevent him from maintaining his status being a father in the music industry, which explains why he does not have any plans in the pipeline to take a break from performing music like some colleagues simply because he desires to mentor fresh talents.
“That I want to mentor young up and coming artistes doesn’t stop my own career movement, it’s more like a positive energy; it’s not something you need to take a break from.
You don’t have to wait for your fire to die down before igniting another person’s, while your fire is burning you can use it to ignite another person’s fire, so they could feed off the good energy that you emit. That’s why I’m always here; I feel I’ve already done my own thing, all I do now is to satisfy my fans, use the attention and limelight to influence another person”,
