The project manager of popular gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, Hillary Vincent, has denied media reports claiming the Wellu Wellu crooner slumped and died on Friday, November 25.
The veteran gospel artiste passed away last Friday, and many reports claimed he slumped and died.
Setting the records straight, Vincent in an interview with Punch, said late Okposo died in his sleep.
“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.” he said
The 51-year-old singer left behind his wife, Ozzy, and children.
