Popular gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, is dead. He reportedly slumped on Friday morning before he died. He was aged 51. He was known for his hit song, ‘Wellu Wellu’ which took the music industry by storm in the early 2000s.

The singer’s last post on Instagram was on Thursday. He posted a throwback video of himself performing at an event with the caption, “Throw back Thursday. Sammie Okposo  praise party. SOPP live in Lagos. Friday, November 4, 2022. It was a blast. Jesus did it.”

It will be recalled that earlier in the year, Christianity Nigeria reported that the gospel singer spoke about cheating on his wife. He later deactivated his social media account for some days. While "announcing" his comeback, the ‘Wellu-Wellu’ singer said Christ has redeemed him and he no longer walks after the flesh but after the spirit.

He said, “I am free from the power of sin. I am no longer bound by the fear of men. I am the righteousness of God in Christ. I am born of God the life of God is in me; Christ in me the hope of glory I am free from the law, from the power of sin. I am no longer bound by the fear of men.

“God’s grace is available, sufficient and working for me. Jesus already saved me not because of any works of righteousness that I have done, but because of His own compassion and mercy, by the cleansing of the new birth (spiritual transformation, regeneration) and renewing by the Holy Spirit.

“Jesus is crazy about me, He loves me just the way I am. Christ has redeemed me. I live free, all my fears and mistakes are drowned in God’s perfect Love. There is, therefore, no condemnation to me. I am in Christ Jesus.

“I walk not after the flesh but after the spirit; the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made free from the power of sin and death. Who is he or she that saith a thing and it cometh to pass when the Lord commandeth it not…nobody.”
