The NBBF took to Twitter to dedicate their victories against US and Argentina to the late Olanrewaju Fasasi, popularly known as Sound Sultan.
The Icon who’s not only a singer and songwriter also made a great impact in the Basketball league in Nigeria.
Sound Sultan was a huge basketball enthusiast. He played in school and in 2015 acquired a stake in the Lagos Islanders, a Lagos-based basketball club founded in 1984.
He actively worked to promote the sport in Lagos and Nigeria.
Here’s the tweet;
“We dedicate the victories against US & Argentina to late Olanrewaju Fasasi (@Soundsultan). You saw this day coming when Nigeria would become a dominant force in global basketball. Ironically, the day we won against @usabasketball, was when you gave up the ghost. RIP,”
