Sammie Okposo, a Nigerian gospel singer, has passed away. His age was 51.
Although the specifics of his passing are still unclear, close friends, including the musician Buchi Atuonwu, also known only as Buchi, told Channels Television that he passed away on Friday in Abuja.
His coworker, Righteousman, who still seems in shock over his death, called it a tragedy. The Welu Welusinger also collapsed last week after his praise party concert in the UK, and he received treatment for weariness, the speaker noted.
Sammie was scheduled to minister at the Outpouring Assembly International in Calabar from November 25 to 27, along with gospel musicians Eben, Chuks Praise, Joy Favour, and Victor Edit.
The musician described in 2020 how he managed to survive an automobile accident at Lagos’ Third Mainland Bridge.
One of Nigeria’s most esteemed gospel musicians, Okposo, recently made news due to an affair controversy. Later, the singer apologized, but she later removed the Instagram post.
This is something to brag about and testify of the miracle-working power of God; I have a very big God who is always by my side to deliver me, the man wrote on Instagram at the time. “I was not going to post this because I had already thanked, praised, and worshiped God for delivering me from death Saturday, May 16, 2020,” he said.
“The object you see is my car’s propeller shaft, which broke off as I was driving. I was traveling at a speed of 100 to 120 kph on the Third Mainland Bridge, which connects to CMS, just before everything happened, and I was headed toward Surulere, he continued.
“As I was driving, I heard a voice say, ‘Slow down,’ so I instantly slowed down to 60 kph. Ten seconds after slowing down from 120 kph to 60 kph, my car’s propeller shaft abruptly disconnected with a loud noise.
