Gospel musician, Sammie Okposo, dies at 51

He was reportedly recovering, but sadly, this morning, his condition worsened, resulting in his passing.

Gospel music icon Sammie Okposo from Nigeria has passed away.

The 51-year-old music producer passed away on November 25 in the morning. He had been hospitalized for a few days to receive treatment for an undisclosed illness.

He was reportedly recovering, but sadly, this morning, his condition worsened, resulting in his passing.

After publicly apologizing to his wife Ozioma for cheating on her, the gospel musician did this a few months ago.

The singer of “Wellu Wellu” admitted to having an intimate relationship with another woman in 2021 while visiting the US in a statement posted on his official Instagram profile on Monday, January 24.

He claimed he regrets what he did and that he is embarrassed of it because it hurt his wife and family deeply. 

He continued by saying that, until he has fully recovered, he will temporarily halt all ministry activities.

Read his post below;

“Dear Friends,
I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but know that this is the right thing to do. On my recent trip to the USA (Late 2021), I got intimately involved with a lady, knowing that this was not appropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel. I am ashamed and regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife, Ozioma, my family and I.

As I work in making peace with God, repenting and asking for His forgiveness, I am suspending myself from all ministry work until full restoration as this is what is proper and what I know I owe God and His people.

To my wife, Ozioma. I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you. Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgement is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day for the rest of my life.

I want to take this moment and apologize to all Fathers and Mothers of the Faith and ministers of the Gospel for my behavior and moral failure. I won’t be here if not for your investment and belief in what God has called me to do. I sincerely apologize for this embarrassing situation.

To all that have been a part of my ministry, followed my ministry or know me personally, I am truly sorry for disappointing you. I regret any pain or disappointment that this news of my moral failure and poor judgement may cause you and I am truly sorry for disappointing you. I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me…. Sammie Okposo”.
