Sound Sultan breathed his last after battling lymphoma — a type of cancer that starts in the white blood cells.

The deceased’s funeral followed shortly after on Sunday at the Marlboro Muslim Cemetry in New Jersey.

A procession was scheduled to hold on July 16 at Satellite Town, Amuwo Odofin LGA of Lagos where he grew up.

But Patrick Morah, the committee chairman of the event, issued a statement in which he announced the postponement of the candlelight event.

He stated that the decision was taken after consultations with the police authorities and other security agencies.

“Following a series of very violent cult-related clashes, general insecurity and a few deaths in recent time, our security advisers, made up of retired and serving military officers and the Nigeria Police have made it clear that this is not an ideal time for public gatherings of any procession as security cannot be guaranteed,” the statement read.

“We value life and cannot risk the lives of Sound Sultan’s numerous fans and members of the general public by going ahead with the event as planned. We deeply regret any inconvenience this decision may bring.”
