The abrupt death of musician Sammie Okposo adds to the list of unfortunate deaths that have happened this year.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Sammie Okposo, a gospel singer, and performer has passed away, according to many sources.
The music producer, 51, passed away this morning, November 25, 2022.
Although his project manager, Hillary Vincent, has confirmed the news, the circumstances surrounding the death are still unknown because the deceased’s family has not released an official statement.
Speaking with a Punch correspondent over the phone, Vincent said, “Yes it’s true. It happened this morning.”
The manager of Okposo refused to speak further on the singer’s passing and withheld the reason of death. According to several stories, the artist suddenly slumped and passed away.
His passing occurs only a few months after the veteran musician, who was engaged in a horrific vehicle accident while driving on Lagos’ 3rd mainland bridge in May 2022 but was “saved from the clutches of the devil and his collaborators,” managed to avoid meeting his demise.
Born on May 30, 1971, Okposo. He was a Psalmist, a worldwide gospel performer from Nigeria, a music producer, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment.
