The family of late gospel singer Sammie Okposo have released his burial arrangements.

Recall that Sammie Okposo had passed away in his sleep in the early hours of Friday, November 26, 2022.

Flourish Peters, the lead pastor of the LOGIC Church shared details of the artiste’s death in his sermon on Sunday.

Peters revealed that Okposo was found while alspee on. chair by his wife.

He said “On Friday, I received a troubling call around 4.45 am – a call I wish I never received. But it is what it is. It was Ozy Okposo (Sammie Okposo’s wife’s name) on the other side of the phone saying ‘Sammie, wake up in Jesus’ name.”

“So, contrary to what blogs reported, he did not slump and die. He sat on the chair watching TV, before sleeping. But never went back upstairs to sleep. From his sleep, he slept into glory. I went there and saw the body. I conducted CPR and hit him hard. But nobody sees Jesus and looks away. It becomes challenging when a believer crosses over to the other side. It is deeply painful for me. I feel hurt.”

An industry tribute night would be held at the La Madison Place, Oniru, Lagos on the 13th of December 2022.

The service of songs would be held on the 14th of December 2022 and he would be finally laid to rest on the 18th of December 2022.
