Popular Nigerian gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, is dead.

by Our Reporter

Multiple sources told Pointblanknews.com he died in the early hours of today – Friday.
According to the sources, the singer, who recently made headlines following a cheating scandal, slumped and died at his home on Friday morning.

He was 51.

Okposo set the internet on fire early this year when he took to his verified Instagram page to apologise to his wife, Ozioma, after cheating on her with another woman in the United States in an incident that happened in 2021.

As a result of the scandal, the singer made the decision to take time off from ministration in order to retrace his step with God before returning to the ministry after a few months.

In May this year, the veteran singer escaped death by the whiskers in a ghastly car accident while driving on Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

Okposo said he “was saved from the hands of the devil and his cohorts.”

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

Sammie Okposo started his music career as a soundtrack producer for Nollywood in 1992. He was well-known at that time in the small circle of Nollywood actors and producers.

He later began to get more career flashpoints when he started the Sammie Okposo Praise Party, a platform that brought many up-and-coming Nigerian gospel artistes into the scene.

The Niger Delta-born music star was known for emboldening the gospel music scene by taking his music away from the quiet confines of the church.

He released his first album Unconditional Love in 2000.
