Sammie Okposo, unquestionably one of Nigeria’s most popular gospel artists, recently apologized to his wife Ozioma for cheating on her.
According to sources, the gospel singer met the woman in the last quarter of 2021 in the United States and became romantically engaged with her.
He stated he is ashamed of his actions and regrets them because they have caused his wife and family a lot of pain.
The musician has indicated that he will be pausing all ministry activities for the time being till he is fully restored.
He pleaded for his wife’s forgiveness and promised to work hard for the rest of his life to regain her trust.
In a throwback interview, the Delta-State gospel artist, who used to make movie soundtracks, said his wife is a good woman and boasted about not having a side chick. Sammie made the following revelations:
‘‘I am happily married. I am happy I did not get married before I married my wife. I married my best friend. She is a good woman, she is a supporter. She loves Sammie Okposo and not the superstar. We were friends for three and half years before we got married.’’
Speaking further about their not having a child yet, he said, “I am not bothered. Why should I be bothered? Am I God?
Anything that has to do with life is not in my control. God is the person with the final say when it comes to childbirth. It is going to happen, because delay is not denial. However, it is not affecting the happiness in my home.
I am not waiting for my wife to give me a child to bring extra happiness. It has not even formed a discussion in our home. God is the owner of babies; he is the one that gives.
“I thank God because he did not give me some things when I wanted them. In the meantime, I am grooving, rocking and graciously enjoying my wife because there is no distraction and responsibility of raising a child yet.
When God feels we have enjoyed ourselves enough, he will give us double for our trouble. The way we are now, if I’m on tour in America and I miss her, she could join me if she’s free but when babies are involved, you can’t just leave home like that.”
The gospel singer who had a well-documented dalliance with Kate Henshaw in the past and has a reputation for women, said all his attention is now on Jesus and his wife. “It is a time to focus, I looked at myself in the mirror and spoke to myself.
As far as Sammie Okposo is concerned, no more side chick for me. It is not even a topic of discussion,” he said.
