The first posthumous single of Sound Sultan, the late Nigerian singer and rapper, has been released.
The song titled ‘Friends’ was released on streaming platforms on Friday.

The less than four-minute track sees the rapper talking about how happy he feels when he realizes he has friends that can stay with him during trials and tribulations.

“I wanna let you know it blows my mind/ Everytime I look around o and I see you you you/ True to God, I mean am o/ Everytime I look around and I see you you you/ I get friends wey dey hold me down/ I get friends when raba dey/ I get friends when yawa dey,” the lyrics read.
An album listening party for the late Sound Sultan’s project is scheduled for July 10.
The listening party will hold in Brooklyn, New York.
