Gospel singers, others pay tribute to late Sammie Okposo

It is no longer news that popular gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, is dead. Some of his colleagues have paid tributes to him on their social media pages.

Nathaniel Bassey wrote, “The news of our brother’s passing, Minister Sammie Okposo, hit me really hard this morning. (I am) still dazed. I pray for God’s comfort and strength for the immediate family, friends and colleagues.” On her part, Tope Alabi said, “Rest in the bosom of the Lord, Sammie Okposo.”

Ada Ehi-Moses posted, “This afternoon, we were hit by the news that Bro Sammie Okposo has transitioned. (I am) shocked and still shocked but we are consoled in the hope that he is alive in the presence of his maker and God.

“We pray for the comfort of the Holy Ghost for his family and everyone directly affected by his passing. It is well, it is well. Say to the righteous, it is well.”

Joe Praize wrote, “So so so difficult to take in but we are comforted because we know you are chilling in heaven. A better place."

Popular presenter, Frank Edoho, said, “My friend, Sammie Okposo, has left us with a painful hollow in our hearts. I am saddened because he literally praised and worshipped God all the time. God probably needed that sonorous voice in heaven. Da, Sammy! I will miss you, immensely. Rest in peace.”

A Facebook user, Kelly Hassino wrote, “Anyone who has put a smile on the faces of millions and joy in their hearts deserve to be honoured and appreciated. At 51 years, you have lived a fulfilled life and your legacy will be sustained and remembered. RIP to Sammie Okposo.”

Another Facebook user, Praise Fowowe, said, “We won’t cry Sammie. We will celebrate you because you have done enough to live forever. Weluwelu will forever be evergreen… You were a genius and your ability to make extraordinary put of a normal Sunday school song may not be matched.

“Thanks for all you did for us. Thanks for giving yourself. Thanks for facing the storms and breaking every yoke of stereotypes. May your body rest in peace. May your spirit which you have released through your songs live forever and inspire your generations. We refuse to cry brother.”
