Farida and Sound Sultan
Farida Fasasi, the wife to late Nigerian singer, Olanrewaju Fasasi, popularly known as Sound Sultan, on Saturday celebrated the music icon on his posthumous birthday.
Taking to her Instagram page, she shared a video showing her husband in different stages of his life.
In her caption, Farida stated what she missed about her late husband.
She wrote, “Olanrewaju 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.”
The popular singer had died on the 11th of July after battling Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma. He was buried the same day in the United States, according to Islamic rites.
A month after his death, his wife, Farida, had broken her silence over her husband’s death as she penned an emotional tribute in his memory.
Part of the tribute read, “It still feels like a bad dream. How is this my fate?. Living without you has to be the worst punishment life has thrown my way.”
“My dear Aboo, my nights have been so long and cold since you left me. My sweet gentle husband, the love of my entire life, my world. Thank you for giving me the best of yourself for the past years. Our love was truly perfect and I am totally lost without you.”
On October 1, 2021, Farida had also celebrated her husband on what should have been their 12th marriage anniversary.
