Breaking: Gospel Minister Sammie Okposo is Dead

The minister passed on Friday morning, at age 51.

His project manager, Hillary Vincent, confirmed the news to our correspondent via phone call.

Replying to inquiries, he said, “Yes it’s true. It happened this morning.”

Vincent, however, declined further statements on the singer’s demise as he did not reveal the cause of the death.

Nonetheless, unverified sources on the Internet noted that the singer slumped before he was pronounced dead.

The Wellu Wellu master, as he was fondly called, was an internationally-recognized music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment.

Sammie Okposo began his music career as a soundtrack producer for Nollywood in 1992. He was well-known at that time in the small circle of Nollywood actors and producers.

He later started getting more career flashpoints when he started the Sammie Okposo Praise Party, a platform that brought many up-and-coming Nigerian gospel artists into the limelight.

Psalm 121:7-8
"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good: His love endures forever."

The Niger Delta-born gospel artist was known for emboldening the gospel music scene by taking his music away from the quiet confines of the church.

He released his first album Unconditional Love in 2000.
