The family of the late gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, has announced the funeral arrangements.
Mr Okposo died on November 25, 2022, at the age of 51.
According to the family, he is to be burial on December 15. The funeral service will be a private affair, the family said.
A tribute night will be held for him on Tuesday, December 13 in Lagos State, followed by a service of songs on Wednesday.
Mr Vincent said, “It is not true that Sammie slumped and died. That report is false. At the right time, the family will set the records straight. But, I can tell you authoritatively that he did not slump. Rather, he just did not wake up from his sleep.”
The late singer started his music career as a soundtrack producer for Nollywood in 1992. He was famous at that time in the small circle of Nollywood actors and producers.
He came into the limelight when he started the Sammie Okposo Praise Party, a platform that brought many up-and-coming Nigerian gospel artists into the scene.
Sammie Okposo released his first album Unconditional Love in 2000.
