People Told Me I Would Lose My Fans If I Got Married – Sound Sultan


Naija Ninja boss,Sound Sultan has been happily married for five years. But that may not have happened if he had listened to advice from people who told him marriage was a no-no for any male musician – it would chase away female fans, apparently.
Speaking to Punch, Sultan recalls how so many people tried to discourage him from getting married saying…
“People told me that if I got married I would lose my fans. It is just a saying that they use to scare you from marriage in the industry. You would be surprised how many American gangster rappers have wonderful families, so don’t believe such talks. As far as you can shield your family from the limelight you will do fine. The more you want to make a star out of all of them, the more people begin to find out things and begin to talk and of course nobody is perfect,” he said.
Recounting how he proposed to his wife,Sultan whose real name is Lanre Fasasi, said it was nothing special because they had been together for seven years and so it was nothing strange when they eventually tied the knot.
“I was reading a wedding magazine and I was ashamed to show my wife because the person proposed with a helicopter. It wrote ‘will you marry me’ in the sky as it was flying. For me, it was like a teleported thing, we cannot even remember how it happened we just realised that we got married. We courted for about seven years and we were good friends.
“I have known her for 12 years and she is my friend and lover. It is just like when friends want to go into something, they don’t make it formal. I did not kneel to propose to my wife, if I knelt down she probably would have been alarmed and forget that I wanted to propose. She is a natural woman and very respectful and she is not my fan. She does not listen to my music but helps me to build my dream.”
