After independently releasing other singles and featuring in hit songs of other artistes, Sound Sultan was signed by Kennis Music.

When asked the secret behind his staying power in the Nigerian industry, in his last major interview with PREMIUM TIMES, the soft-spoken singer said: “I have managed.

” If you don’t put a strong topic or reason behind the song, the song will go with the season. Like my ‘Motherland’ song, I don’t remember the number of times I listen to it when I am home or abroad.”
