Hillary Vincent, the project manager of popular gospel musician Sammie Okposo, has denied claims that the singer slumped in his Lekki, Lagos, home on Friday, November 25, 2022. According to several media outlets, he was rushed to the hospital after allegedly slumping and was confirmed dead on arrival.
However, 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.
Na only You was another popular song which was contained in the album No More Drama. The album featured other gospel singers such as Kefee, Essence, Ige Samsong and Soji Isreal.
Another of his songs, Sing Hallelujah, was released in 2019, but it has continued to make waves, especially in gospel circles.

In 2020, he released Chukwu Ebube, a contemporary afrocentric worship that featured Micheal Stuckey.
Shortly before his death, he had held the Sammie Okposo Praise Party in Lagos on November 4, 2022. A day before his death, he had posted a throwback video of the concert on his Instagram page. In the video, he could be seen leading the congregation in an intense praise and worship session.
Meanwhile, tributes have not stopped pouring in for the singer. A veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, posted a video of both of them together. He added the caption, “This was exactly a month ago in the US. We spent two weeks together and fellowshipped as men. Ate, drank and, as I’m known to do, teased you. Toks or Jedi, would drive you to me and we would spend the entire day together.’’
