Nigerian politicians offered me millions to change my message – Sound Sultan

Sound Sultan is unarguably one of the few singers in the country that started out with social conscious songs and he has stuck to his message even about two decades down the line. However, he told Saturday Beats that his decision to stick to his message came with a heavy price.

The Naija Ninja, as he is fondly referred to by fans, said that he could have been richer or more popular if he changed his tune but he did not. He further revealed that politicians have offered him millions of naira to sing a new tune but he has always declined their offer.

“I sacrificed a lot in my career because I didn’t want to contradict my message. Do you think I don’t want money from politicians? They offered me millions but then, I cannot eat my own words. I have to stand for what I believe in. The most important thing to me is the people. I don’t regret refusing the money they offered me because it is not who I am. With due respect to those that collect money from politicians, I am a very contented person. If it is not in line with my principles, no one can tempt me. It is just the way I live my life. I am into the message I preach,” he said.
