He said the cancer diagnosis for Sound Sultan was late and that they thought he was suffering from malaria.
Lost for words, the 47-year-old said, “…he was one of the ‘goodest’, if I can use that word. He was one of the ‘goodest’ people you can ever come across, like angel.
“For a long time, I did not want to accept that fact, it was like a joke. The diagnosis was late. We thought it was malaria, he did tests in Nigeria. But I don’t want to get into all that.”
Sound Sultan died on July 11, 2021, aged 44. He suffered from Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, also known as cancer of the throat.
