Though Nigerian gospel music star, Sammie Okposo, may be dead, his birthday was still a cause for a celebration on Tuesday night, 30 May, in the Nigeria gospel music scene.

What would have been Mr Okposo’s 52nd birthday was observed with tributes from his family, colleagues and fans across social media.

It was heartwarming to see his legacy and contributions to the Nigerian gospel music scene still being celebrated, even after his passing – a testament of his impact on his fans and colleagues.

The passing of Okposo at the age of 51 shocked many who recognised him as one of Nigeria’s most talented gospel musicians and songwriters.

After starting his career as a soundtrack producer for Nigerian films in 1992, he achieved great success and garnered a loyal following.

His burial took place at a private cemetery in Ikoyi, Lagos.

On what would have been his 52nd birthday, his wife shared touching memories of their time together on her Instagram page.

Via an Instagram reel posted with one of his songs titled ‘Shine’, she shared pictures and videos of them, expressing her love for him and how much she misses him.

She said that she still finds his death painful, but as an anchor, she holds onto the Grace of God in her moments of silent tears.

Her caption read, “My dearest hubby; It’s your birthday today; though I miss you always, I miss you more today; I know how much you loved your birthday; it was unique to you, and you are not here with me. This is incredibly painful.

“In my moments of silent tears, I find His grace strong and joyful because that’s what you would have wanted; and held firmly to the blissful memories, the fun, the laughter we shared. I know you are resting in the Lord, but in my heart, you are always here; I feel your presence.”

Fans’ Messages
