Hillary Vincent, the project manager of popular gospel singer Sammie Okposo, has denied media reports that the Wellu Wellu crooner slumped and died on Friday, November 25.
The veteran gospel singer died last Friday, and many reports claimed he slumped and died.
To set the record straight, Vincent told Punch that 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 was survived by his wife, Ozzy, and their children.
