BIOGRAPHY

“I don’t like explaining it for modesty sake. The sound is music and Sultan is like a title given to someone that rules. I don’t have a restricted genre of music. I can dive into any kind of music I wish by writing”- he added.

 

Sound Sultan is the fourth child amongst six children to Fasasi Liadi Alarape (Father) and Fasasi Adeyinka Ajarat (Mother).

His career in show business started professionally in the ’90s. By 1999 he had won numerous local talent hunt shows, then he released his first single Jagbajantis in 2000 which went on to be an instant hit and a classic song in Nigeria. After independently releasing other singles and featuring in hit songs of other artists, he was signed by Kennis Music.
