Following viral reports that popular Nigerian gospel singer, Sammie Okposo slumped in his Lekki apartment, Lagos State, in the early hours of Friday, Hillary Vincent, the project manager of the late musician has debunked the rumor.
Reports had it that Okposo was rushed to the hospital after he slumped, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
But Vincent in an interview with Sunday Scoop denied the report saying, “It is not true that Sammie slumped and died. That report is false. At the right time, the family will set the records straight. However, I can tell you authoritatively that he did not slump. Rather, he just did not wake up from his sleep.
“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 late gospel singer was renowned for songs such as Welu Welu, which was contained in his first album named Unconditional Love.
He also sang other popular songs such as Na only you, contained in the album named No more drama. The album had other prominent singers such as Essence, Kefee, Soji Israel and Ige Samsong.
Meanwhile, people have continued to express sadness over the passing of the singer. A veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, posted a video of both of them together with the caption, “This was exactly a month ago in the US. We spent two weeks together and fellowshipped as men. Ate, drank and, as I’m known to do, teased you. Toks or Jedi, would drive you to me and we would spend the entire day together.’’
