Naija News earlier reported that Nigerian gospel singers and fans were thrown into mourning following the death of Sammie which occurred in the earlier hours of Friday, November 25, 2022, at age 51.
Since the incident, his wife, Ozioma, has been away from social media while mourning her husband.
However, the deceased’s wife on Friday, December 2, 2022, took to her Instagram page to share a picture of Sammie in a worship mood at a church service.
Although Ozioma didn’t caption the post, she subsequently changed her display picture to a photo of her husband.
Sammie Okposo Honoured In Death
Meanwhile, in honor of the memory of ace gospel artiste, the organizers of Best of Nollywood (BON) Awards have renamed the best Soundtrack in the movie category after the late ‘Wellu Wellu’ singer, who in his lifetime was described as a general in God’s army and took the gospel beyond the church.
The organizers announced the last-minute change to make the 2022 edition, which is set to hold Saturday, December 3, in Owerri, Imo State, a truly memorable one.
“Sammie Okposo in his lifetime was a force, and he did a lot for the growth of gospel music in Nigeria and beyond. We are not a music award, but we feel the need to honour him in some way. This was what inspired us to rename the best soundtrack category after him. His loss will be felt, but all this is just a way to immortalize him” BON Award founder, Seun Ololetuyi noted
