Veteran gospel singer Sammie Okposo dies at 51

Sammie Okposo, internationally-recognised music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment, is dead.

Mr Okposo, who died at the age of 51, Friday morning, reportedly slumped at his residence before giving up the ghost.

The Punch quoted his project manager, Hillary Vincent, as confirming: “Yes, it’s true. It happened this morning.”

In May this year, the veteran singer escaped death in a ghastly car accident while driving at the 3rd Mainland Bridge in Lagos State.

He started his music career as a soundtrack producer for Nollywood movies in 1992 and released his first album titled ‘Addicted’ in 2004.
