Nigerian music legend, Sound Sultan passed away on July 11, 2021, but before his sad demise, the singer had urged people to celebrate him while he’s alive.
Sound Sultan made the call in his last Instagram post and it has left many fans saddened because it seemed like he was giving hints that he was about to leave this world.

The lyrics read in part: “Celebrate me now wey I Dey alive. Appreciate me, now when I dey alive. No be say when I leave this life, you go dey fake am for my back”.
