Sammie Okposo, a well-known Nigerian gospel performer, passed away early on Friday, according to several sources.
The artist reportedly slumped and passed away at his home on Friday morning. He had made news due to a cheating scandal.
He was 51.
When Okposo apologized to his wife Ozioma on his verified Instagram page for cheating on her with another woman in the United States in an incident that occurred in 2021, he ignited the internet.
The singer decided to take a break from ministry following the scandal in order to go back in his spiritual steps before rejoining it after a few months.
The veteran singer narrowly avoided death in a horrifying car accident in May of this year while driving on the third mainland bridge in Lagos, but Okposo claimed he “was saved from the hands of the devil and his cohorts.”
