On this week’s edition of Triple Play (majorly throwback), we focusing on Naija Ninja crooner, Sound Sultan, a veteran in the Nigerian hip-hop industry. The versatile artist has been active from the inception of hip-hop in Nigeria.
Sound Sultan Natural Something (2013)
This song was actually the bomb that year. Sound Sultan is actually a god on when it comes to sound and melody. Not forgetting the light and creative drama he added to the visual of Natural Something. The video starred the likes of IK Osakioduwa, Chidi Mokeme, TY Mix (the music producer), Basketmouth and DJ Jimmy Jatt. Sultan commanded great respect for creating an appealing sound in that year.
Sound Sultan Rainy Days (2006)
Rainy Days by Sound Sultan is one song that speaks of the reality of most people and how awful it turned before they realized it. Melody aside, the singer has got so much power and effect when it comes to lyricism. The message revolves around people living fake lives to impress at the end of the day, losing it all. This song could plunge into any soul and provoke an unconscious critical self-assessment.
Sound Sultan Motherland
One positive sound that was on the lips of many those years. Sound Sultan in Motherland sings the realities faced by most Nigerians that leave the country in search of greener pastures abroad. The video was actually complementary to the sound as well. Seeeing Azadus played the major role of the deportee was something interesting.
