Sule Sax, the saxophonist who is a member of the band of Fuji musician Saheed Osupa, has died.
Saheed announced his passing in a brief but emotional post on Instagram on Tuesday.
The singer said Sule Sax, born Abiodun Lasisi, would forever be remembered for his good works.
“This is hard. I am saddened! The memory we shared are numerous, but no amount of words can express my grief at this period!
“Rest In Peace, Sule Sax. You shall forever be remembered for all your good deeds.
“May Almighty God give the family you left behind, the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss!” Saheed wrote.
In December 2019, it was revealed that Sule Sax was hospitalised and in need of a kidney transplant which would cost around N15 million in India.
Saheed raised the alarm, stating that he could not foot the bill alone. He begged for the support of Nigerians and asked the public to come to the aid of one of his trusted hands.
It was also revealed that N60,000 was being spent weekly for dialyzer at Oshodi, Lagos State. The saxophonist, it was also gathered, was always going for check-ups at the Gbagada General Hospital.
In 2021, Sule Sax appeared to be fine after the surgery when he gave his testimony in a church. He said he gave his life to Jesus Christ during that trying moment of his life.
Two years down the line, the saxophonist has now passed on.
His last Instagram post was on June 26, 2022 when he celebrated a certain Joseph Oluwayomi whom he described as his loving and caring brother.
