Gospel Artist Great Sammie Okposo  Dies Of “High Blood Pressure” Complications, Says Family Source

Delta State born international gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, who passed on Friday morning might have died of “high blood pressure,” a family source has disclosed.

Sammie was a renowned music producer, song writer and accomplished music artiste who started his career from Delta State.

The family source, who is one of the brothers to the deceased singer, also confirmed that the singer died on Friday at his Lekki home in Lagos.

Sammie Okposo, who died after he allegedly slumped on Friday morning, hailed from Isoko, Delta State. He was aged 51.

While pleading to remain anonymous, the source disclosed that Okposo was confirmed ‘dead on arrival’ by medical doctors at the hospital he was rushed to after he slumped.

“My brother (Sammie Okposo) died this morning at his Lekki home. Yes, he slumped but he was confirmed dead on arrival when we took him to hospital. He died as a result of high blood pressure”, the source said.

Meanwhile, Sammie Okposo’s project manager, Hillary Vincent, also confirmed the passage of the Isoko-born musician on Friday.

Vincent, who did not give more details of the singer’s death, said “Yes it’s true. It happened this morning.”

Sources close to the late gospel musician confirmed that he had been sick before the Friday morning collapse.

Okposo recently made headlines after a United States-based lady, African Doll, accused the singer of impregnating and abandoning her.

The scandal forced the musician to publicly apologise to his wife, Ozioma, for cheating on her with the lady.

The affair, which Okposo claimed happened in 2021, forced him to announce his withdraw from active ministration until “full restoration.”
