The ceremony was attended by Okposo’s family, friends and colleagues.

Nikki Laoye, another gospel singer, took her Instagram page to share a video of the burial ceremony wherein she is seen weeping bitterly over Sammie’s demise.

“Oh God, my big brother, bros eee. Ahhh seeing you in that casket, watching you being lowered into the ground was super heart breaking for me. The last thing I ever imagined to happen this year,” she wrote in pidgin English.

“I finally freaked out as they started covering you up with sand and cement and the tears wouldn’t stop. Kept calling you, kept thanking you. The last time I felt this kinda mad pain was when I lost my dad.”

Okposo established himself as an international gospel artiste. He was also a music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment.

The singer released his first album ‘Addicted’ in 2004. He has also collaborated with many other artistes in the gospel and soul genres.
