Late Sound Sultan’s older brother, Baba Dee has addressed people who claim to be friends of the late singer but neither attended his memorial nor bothered to reach out to his widow.
Baba Dee in an Instagram post, expressed his displeasure at people who parade themselves as friends of the late Sultan but their friendship ends on social media posts and condolences. He also referred to them as fake friends, revealing that they couldn’t attend his memorial, even though it was on a sit at home Saturday.
Baba Dee wrote, “Fake friends, not a call to his wife, didn’t bother to attend his memorial event on a sit at home Saturday”.
The media personality, angered by their false friendship, cussed that their deaths will also be used to generate social media content.
“Posting pictures and videos on social media, your deaths shall also be used to generate social media content,” Dee cussed.
Dee’s cussed statement triggered reactions online. Some said that his reaction was rather harsh being that everyone has their own problems and going through something too. Others supported him saying that no matter what anyone is going through, calling or reaching out to the late Sultan’s family isn’t that much a task.
