Okposo died in his sleep on Friday November 25, 2022.
Ayefele, in a condolence message made available to newsmen on Monday, described the death of the singer as a big loss to the entire gospel music industry in Nigeria and globally
“On behalf of my family, Merry Makers Band and Fresh FM Nigeria, it is with the deepest sense of grief that I express shock at the sudden death of Sammie Okposo. Sammie’s death on Friday, the 25th of November, 2022, came as a big loss to the entire gospel music industry in Nigeria and globally.
“No doubt, Sammie had imprinted his feet on the sands of time through diligence, creativity and passion for praising the Almighty God through music. Even though he’s no more here with us, his numerous works of praise, which earned him local and international laurels, are still here to praise God and lift the souls of those still living.
“It is my fervent prayer that our God, the consoler of the bereaved shall give the entire Okposo’s family the strength to bear the irreversible loss. Rest assured that Sammie has joined the heavenly host in praising God and we shall meet again.
“As John 11:25-26, says, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.’
“May the soul of the multiple award winning Music Evangelist rest in the bossom of the Lord,” Ayefele said.
