Nigerian Gospel Singer, Sammie Okposo Slumps, Dies At 51

Family  disclosed that the music producer slumped on Friday morning and died.

He was aged 51.

Okposo made headlines early in the year after he publicly apologized to his wife, Ozioma for cheating on her with another lady in the United States.

In the apology which was shared on his Instagram page, the singer lamented over the incident which he noted happened in 2021.

The singer further stated that the development has seen him step aside from ministerial work until “full restoration.”

The singer’s death was confirmed by the family, in a statement signed by one Hecter Okposo.

In the statement, however, the family did not reveal the cause of Sammie’s death.

It read, “It is with a heavy heart but with total submission to God that I announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, Minister of God, Sammie Okposo.

“Sammie slept and went to be with the Lord on the morning of Friday, November 25, 2022.

“More details about the burial will be communicated soon.

“We are consoled because we know that he is with Jesus singing with angels. We kindly request that the family is allowed to grieve peacefully at this time.”

This newspaper had reported on the singer’s death, following confirmation from the deceased’s project manager, Hillary Vincent.

Though the cause of his death is still unknown, unverified reports stated that the singer slumped and was eventually pronounced dead.

The Wellu Wellu master, as he was fondly called, was an internationally-recognised music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment.
