Dunamis International Gospel Centre has announced that it has removed singer Sammie Okposo’s name from the list of gospel artistes slated to minister at the church’s concert on Friday over infidelity.
Africa Daily News, New York gathered that a new flyer posted on Instagram on Tuesday, reveals that the singer’s name previously listed to perform has been removed.
This is coming after the singer confessed and publicly apologised for cheating on his wife Ozioma with a US-based lady.
The 51-year old singer on Instagram admitted to cheating on his wife Ozioma during his trip to the United States.
The Wellu Wellu singer in his statement revealed that he had entered into an intimate relationship with another woman.
Apologising in an Instagram post, Sammie wrote: ‘Dear friends, I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but know 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. 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, 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’.
Addressing his wife Ozioma, he said, ‘To my wife, Ozioma. I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you’.
Many Nigerians meanwhile took to social media to lambast the gospel singer on Tuesday.
