The management of Sammie Okposo has disclosed that he didn’t slump, but died in his sleep.
Hillary Vincent, the project manager of popular Nigerian gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, has denied the claim that the singer slumped in his Lekki, Lagos, residence on Friday morning, November 25.
It was earlier reported that after he allegedly slumped, he was rushed to the hospital, and was pronounced dead on arrival.
In an exclusive interview with Sunday Scoop, Vincent said, “It is not true that Sammie slumped and died. That report is false. At the right time, the family will set the records straight. But, I can tell you authoritatively that he did not slump. Rather, he just did not wake up from his sleep.
“As regards the funeral arrangements, the details will be made known by the family. But right now, they are still in grief and mourning the departed singer.”
The singer was best known for songs such as Welu Welu, which was on his first album, Unconditional Love.
