Nigerian musician, Oludipe Oluwasanmi David aka Spyro, has made a revelation about how politicians tried to entice late singer, Sound Sultan with bags of money.
According to him, his mentor, the late Sound Sultan lived a good life and taught him a lot.
Speaking while featuring as a guest in the latest episode of The Honest Bunch podcast co-hosted by actor, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu, he explained that Sound Sultan, while he was alive, neither drank nor smoked.
He said the late singer told him that politicians would visit him with ‘Ghana must go’ filled with money and beg for support but he would decline.
According to him, “I saw Sound Sultan, he doesn’t drink nor smoke. Even when we go to club, you won’t see him chasing women.
“We owe it to the fans to live a decent life. The first time I met Sound Sultan, he sat me down on his dinning table and told me, ‘A lot of politicians come to me because they know if I support them, everybody will do the same.’
“He said they [politicians] would bring a lot of money. Dem go put Ghana-must-go down say just support. But then he told me that if he accept, wetin him dey plan down for his kids? But now he is actually gone.
“We live like we own our lives. You are going to leave your kids behind one day. What are you leaving them to? What kind of society are you creating and you’re leaving them to? He [Sound Sultan] made that impact on me.”
