Sammie Okposo, reggae artiste, Faya, has called on musicians in the country to watch out for their lifestyle, stressing that “we are living in a serious time right now.”ollowing the sudden death of Nigeria’s gospel singer,
Faya, in an interview with TheNewsGuru.com (TNG), noted that apart from Okposo’s sudden death, a renowned disc jockey (DJ), Lucky Rankin, also passed on in a similar manner on Monday.
“Lucky Rankin played in a nightclub till about 12 midnight, went home, slept and died on Monday morning. We have to watch out for our lifestyle. If we look at all these things, we still need to talk to ourselves,” he said.
Speaking on Okposo’s demise, the reggae artiste expressed bitterness about how the deceased was treated by Christians after his sex scandal.
“Sammie Okposo had his flops; but even if we have to correct him or chastise him, we have to do that with love. Many people are of the view that he (Okposo) was not treated very well- with the way they tried to push him out of the church, boycott his concerts and so many things. One man of God said how the pastors slayed Sammie Okposo,” he added.
According to him, Christianity today is not what it ought to be. Christianity is supposed to be a Christ life type, look at how Christ would behave in certain scenarios and how a non-Christian should behave.
Faya hinted that all the songs he is working on presently are to see how he could preach to people, tell them that “this life we are living in, we have to go back at ourselves.”
He urged Christians to look back at the old religion and expressed his condolences to members of Okposo’s family.
