Innocent Idibia, the ace Nigerian singer better known as 2Baba, has paid a visit to the cemetary in the United States where Sound Sultan, his late colleague, was buried.


Sound Sultan died on July 11, 2021, after a 4-year battle with angioimmunoblastic t-cell lymphoma — a type of blood cancer that starts in the white blood cells.

On Monday, the ‘For Instance’ crooner shared a video on his Instagram page where he was accompanied by other friends as they paid tribute to the late singer.

While they paid their respects by laying flowers on the tombstone of the ‘Area’ singer, 2Baba was later seen crouching in front of the graveyard.


“Went to pay my respect to my brother SOUND SULTAN with my brothers @emmaugolee @amfrankiej @blackahrank,” he wrote.

“July 11, world Sultan day. Blessed #grateful #warrior. We miss you my dear friend @soundsultan. Olanrewaju Fasasi. Bless up.”
