Speaking about the iconic singer, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu visibly struggled as recounted how he first watched the late Sound Sultan perform at the French Cultural Centre in 2003.
He said they went on to become friends and even neighbors; using the same gym for three years and attending family functions together.
“I dare you to go anywhere to find out anything negative about Sound Sultan,” Ebuka said, blinking back tears.
“When we say good nice things when people pass away….but this time everything being said about him is beyond the truth. An absolutely amazing human being, nice guy, warm soul.”
Obi-Uchendu went on to share one of Sound Sultan’s interviews on the youth-centric show “Rubbin Minds” where he’d been a guest several times.
