According to the veteran singer, he has failed in carrying out his duties as a father, by training his children in the foreign way.

Sound Sultan wrote “I just realised while i was fulfilling this big dream of bringing my kids up as aje butters who speak fluent English ,i have fallen short of upholding my duties in passing down the culture through the language of Yoruba . …Yoruba is now the Lingua Franca in my house!!!”

The singer became famous in the late 90’s after he released, “Mathematics”, a song which systematically outlined the socio-economic disparity in Nigeria.

He also dropped another hit “Motherland”, produced in 2007, which reminds Nigerians in diaspora that there is nowhere like home.

Sound Sultan hammers on patriotism. “Motherland” urges citizens to think twice before travelling out of the country in search of greener pastures.

The singer is regarded as one of the pacesetters of modern hip hop music in Nigeria.
