The management of Sammie Okposo has revealed the real cause of the singer’s death saying that what was reported on many media outlets concerning how he died was untrue.
Okposo’s Project Manager, Hillary Vincent during an interview with journalists, gave the real details of the death of the gospel artiste. He said that the news making the rounds that he slumped and died at his Lekki residence on Friday morning, November 25, 2022, is false, and didn’t know where that emanated from.
However, he assured that Okposo’s family will, later on, give full details of his funeral but said what he’s sure of was that the singer slept and didn’t wake up the next day.
He said “As regards the funeral arrangements, the details will be made known by the family. But right now, they are still in grief and mourning the departed singer.
The singer was best known for songs such as Welu Welu, which was on his first album, Unconditional Love.
Na only You was another popular song that was contained in the album No More Drama. The album featured other gospel singers such as Kefee, Essence, Ige Samsong, and Soji Isreal.
Another of his songs, Sing Hallelujah, was released in 2019, but it has continued to make waves, especially in gospel circles.
In 2020, he released Chukwu Ebube, a contemporary Afrocentric worship that featured Micheal Stuckey.
Shortly before his death, he held the Sammie Okposo Praise Party in Lagos on November 4, 2022. A day before his death, he posted a throwback video of the concert on his Instagram page. In the video, he could be seen leading the congregation in an intense praise and worship session.
