On Tuesday, January 25, 2022, Gospel singer Sammie Okposo profusely apologised to his wife, family, friends and the Church for infidelity, on his Instagram page.
The next day, however, the “wellu-wellu” crooner had pulled down the six-paragraph apology.
Okposo has trended on social media platforms for all of 48 hours since his public apology went viral, with some commenters saying he should have apologised to his family privately instead.
In the wake of the singer’s negative press and backlash, the Dunamis International Gospel Centre (DIGC) removed Okposo’s name from the list of singers billed to perform at its concert scheduled for January 28.
Okposo had said:
“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.”
