BIOGRAPHY

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 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). He attended Stepping Stone Nursery and Primary (1981–1987) school before moving to Federal Government College Ogbomosho (1988–1993) to attain his secondary school education before acquiring a Geography and Regional Planning degree from Lagos State University in 1999.

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.
