The Nigerian Basketball Federation has taken to social media to dedicate their recent wins against USA and Argentina to the late Nigerian Music icon, Sound Sultan.
Sound Sultan who passed away on the 11th of July 2021 (on the same day Nigeria defeated USA) loved Basketball.
He previously played basketball for the Dodan Warriors, so he was an experienced basketballer. In 2015, he partnered with investors and purchased shares in the Lagos Islanders basketball team. Afterwards, he became a facilitator of the African Basketball League and was one of the special guests at the first NBA African Games.
After the fallout of the African Basketball League, the veteran singer sealed a deal with the organizers of the Continental Basketball League to become a team owner of the Lagos City Club, and a facilitator of the league’s entertainment.
