Nigerian gospel singer Sammie Okposo is dead
Close associates of the singer such as Buchi Atuonwu simply known as Buchi revealed that he died on Friday in Abuja.
His colleague, Righteousman, who appears to still be in shock, described his passing as a tragedy. He also added that the Welu Welu singer had also collapsed last week upon his return from his praise party concert in the UK and was treated for exhaustion.
The 51 year old Sammie was slated to minister, alongside other gospel singers, Eben, Chuks Praise, Joy Favour, and Victor Edit at the Outpouring Assembly International in Calabar between Friday, November 25 to 27.
In 2020, the singer narrated how he survived a car accident at the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
Okposo, who was one of Nigeria’s most decorated gospel musicians, recently hit the headlines over an infidelity scandal. The singer later tendered an apology but later deleted the message on Instagram.
