Late Sound Sultan’s widow, Farida Fasasi, has opened up on life after her husband of 11 years.
A month after the passing away of the immensely talented singer, Sound Sultan’s widow said she’s still struggling to accept her fate.
The mother of three broke her silence in a post on social media.
She wrote: “I have been told that this is the will of God but I’m still struggling with it. Lanre, I’m struggling daily!!… Time heals right?
She went further to express the emotional wreck she has been going through since the passing away of her husband, who died after a hard-fought battle with Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which is a group of related cancers that affect the lymphatic system.
“On the 11th of July 2021 my world went pitch black, it’s been a month and still I can see no color. It still feels like a bad dream… how is this my fate?. Living without you has to be the worst punishment life has thrown my way.
“My dear Aboo, my nights have been so long and cold since you left me. My sweet gentle husband, the love of my entire life, my world.
“Thank you for giving me the best of yourself for the past years. Our love was truly perfect and I am totally lost without you.”
Farida used the opportunity to thank everyone who has supported her family since his death.
“… Hmmm! I wish to use this medium to thank everyone for the immense support and all the kind words towards our family.
“I do not take this for granted. Lanre was truly the best guy and I count it a privilege to have shared my life with him. Let’s keep him alive in our hearts by letting love lead. Love is the only true religion and Lanre’s life is a perfect example.”
