Celebrated gospel musician Sammie Okposo has died. He was aged 51.

The multiple award-winning Delta-State-born Okposo slumped and died Friday after suffering a heart attack. 

A couple of years ago, Okposo cheated death after the propeller shaft of his vehicle pulled off while he was driving on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

“I was not going to post this because I had already thanked praised and worshiped God for delivering me from death Saturday, May 16th, 2020 but this is something to brag about and testify of the miracle-working power of God I have a very BIG God who is always by my side to deliver me,” he wrote after the mishap.

He added: “The image you see is my car propeller shaft that pulled off whilst I was in motion just before it happened i was doing 100/120 kph on the 3rd mainland bridge connecting to cms and then to surulere my destination as I was driving suddenly I heard a voice “SLOW DOWN” so immediately I reduced my speed to 60kph 10 seconds after reducing my speed from 120kph to 60kph the propeller shaft of my car pulled off with a loud noise.”

“Just imagine what would have happened if the voice of God did not prompt me to slow down imagine what would have happened if I was still on 120kph when the propeller shaft of my car pulled off.”

“Oh Jesus oh Jesus oh Jesus thank you, my saviour, my deliverer my protector my shield I’m alive because of you Jesus I am fine no scratch nothing missing nothing broken yet again the devil and his cohorts have failed and they will continue to fail.” 

Hillary Vincent – his project manager – has confirmed the news to the media.
