Sound Sultan, a Nigerian rapper, singer-songwriter, actor, comedian, and recording artist was born Olanrewaju Fasasi on 27th November 1976. According to him, Sound Sultan was given to him by his elder brother and sister.

“I don’t like explaining it for modesty’s 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.

After independently releasing other singles and featuring in hit songs of other artists, he was signed by Kennis Music.

After his deal with Kennis Music expired in 2007, Sound Sultan teamed up with his brother Baba Dee to start “Naija Ninjas” which is a franchise that parents a record label, production outfit and clothing line.
