Okposo has decided to take a break from the gospel ministry.
Popular Nigerian gospel musician, Sammie Okposo, has taken to his Instagram handle to apologise to his wife, Ozioma Okposo, friends, and other family members over an affair he had with a US-based woman.
The singer penned the apology earlier today, Tuesday, 25th January 2022.
“I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but that this is the right thing to do. On my recent trip to the USA (Late 2021) I got intimately involved with a lady, knowing that this was not appropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel,” the post read.
He further stated that he is ashamed of his action and is trying to seek forgiveness from God. In his words: “I am ashamed and regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife Ozioma, my family, and I. As I work in making peace with God, repenting and asking for His forgiveness.’’
The Delta State-born gospel musician announced that he would take a break from ministry work as he seeks the face of God for complete restoration.
“I am suspending myself from all ministry work until full restoration as this is what is proper and what I know I owe God and His people,” he added.
Okposo then tendered a public apology to his wife, Ozioma Okposo, and prays that he would be able to win back her love and trust.
“To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you. Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgment is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day for the rest of my life,” he pleaded.
This is coming out barely 24 hours after a lady popularly known as African Doll in the US accused Sammie Okposo of impregnating her in a chat with Obodo TV. The lady stated that she met Okposo during one of his tours in the US. They started an affair that led to the pregnancy but the singer had changed towards her since she told him that she was pregnant.
