I feel blank, says daughter of late Sammie Okposo

Alula, the daughter of the late gospel singer Sammie Okposo, has said her father’s death has left her feeling “blank”.

Alula said this in an Instagram post on Monday in her first post on the social media platform since her father’s death broke out two weeks ago.

PUNCH had reported that Sammie died on November 25. at the age of 51 years.

Alula said: “The truth is that I feel like a blank sheet of paper…. waiting for the different strokes of the brushes”.

He continued, “God knows best because I know you are definitely playing with the angels, changing it for them, letting them know to say Na your voice went bad… Anyway, let’s leave the story to the writer. BIG LOVE My G, RIP.”

The PUNCH reported on Monday (yesterday) that the Okposo family had announced the gospel singer’s funeral arrangements.

A tribute night will be held for him on Tuesday, December 13 in Lagos State, followed by a song service on Wednesday.

Sammie’s funeral will take place on December 15 and will be a private affair.

His manager, Hillary Vincent, had exclusively told The PUNCH that the singer died in his sleep contrary to earlier speculation that it collapsed.

Vincent had said: “It is not true that Sammie collapsed and died. That report is false. At the right time, the family will clear things up. But I can tell you with authority that he did not collapse. Rather, he simply did not wake up from his dream.

Sammie Okposo began his music career as a Nollywood soundtrack producer in 1992. He was well known at the time in the small circle of Nollywood actors and producers.

He later began to have more flashpoints in his career when he started Sammie Okposo Praise Party, a platform that brought many emerging Nigerian evangelical artists onto the scene.

The Niger Delta-born music star was known for emboldening the gospel music scene by taking her music out of the quiet confines of church.

Released his first album unconditional love in 2000.
