Things To Know About Sammie Okposo: Rise To Stardom, Awards And Others by Anniversary: 3:14pm On Jan 25, 2022
Sammie Okposo started his music career as a soundtrack producer for Nollywood in 1992. He was well-known at that time in the small circle of Nollywood actors and producers.

He later began to get more career flashpoints when he started the Sammie Okposo Praise Party, a platform that brought many up-and-coming Nigerian gospel artistes into the scene.

The Niger Delta-born music star was known for emboldening the gospel music scene by taking his music away from the quiet confines of the church.


Awards
Okposo burst into the music scene in the early 2000s. He was relentless in dropping several hit singles and albums which earned him the 2006 Kora Best Gospel Artiste in Africa; the 2014 Crown SABC Best for African Gospel; the 2005 Afro Hollywood UK Best Gospel Artiste, and many others. He is known for his popular Niger Delta-themed songs such as, ‘Welu Welu’ and ‘Oghene Do’, among others.

In a recent interview (Not The PUNCH), when asked whether his affairs contributed to his fame, Okposo stated that he thrived on the negative and positive vibes that his past affairs brought him. But he said he was careful not to be misrepresented by them.

Okposo said, “Of course, they did. As I said, everything works together for good. I tell people that in the midst of all the publicity, be it negative or positive, it will eventually make your name known but you have to be able to balance the situation because sometimes, you may be at the wrong place at the wrong time; sometimes, you can be misrepresented and sometimes, it could be your own doing.”


Endorsements
His 2004 album, “Addicted”, was a hit that lit many entertainment spaces, as he deployed the unique Niger Delta impressions as well as the energy of a well-versed vocalist on the songs.

It was therefore not much a surprise for music critics when he bagged an endorsement with popular telecoms provider, Globacom. Okposo was also a United Nations Peace Ambassador.


Romance
Although Okposo was said to have been romantically involved with many ladies, he spoke in a 2012 interview with a national newspaper where he promised his wife that he would never cheat on her. This was at a time when she had not conceived any child for Okposo. The entertainer broke his promise recently when he confessed to having had an affair with a lady in the United States recently.

Okposo has performed on many national and international platforms. He is also involved with TMG Records, a reputable US-based records label.

Two things involved in this situation;

1. Maybe Sammie want to test his fertile if he can able to impregnate woman or not

2. Or maybe he just want to enjoy himself to test the work of God in that lady's body.

But only God knows the best. The deed has been done. Let Sammie accept his Faith and accept the baby.

My guy just jejely confess cos someone somewhere has threatened to expose or blackmail him. Confess about the ones you did also that you weren’t caught. Bit seriously it’s not easy to be faithful throughout marriage. It takes the grace of God and serious discipline on both the man and the woman, men thinks they are smart sometimes, female faces the most temptation I can bet u. Kudos to all the married men and woman that has been faithful all through their marriage. May God continue to strengthen us, sorry you.

The fact that he slept with another woman outside of his marriage does not necessarily mean he cheated on his wife. Men don't cheat. They only exercise options. Sammy Okposo was only exercising his options. He never cheated on his wife. Women are the only gender that cheats.
I find it really surprising that he had to apologise to his wife and the public for a crime he never committed. Masculinity has gone to the dogs.

Women , the destroyer of men... all due to simps... we need to include simps and feminists as synonymous words...

Men should be careful cos women now are looking for how to get men to make themselves popular thru getting pregnant... just like Sandra... men should stop accepting that narrative of " a man got me pregnant "... that is an old narrative... feminism Brought about the creation of preventive pills and outlawed abortion.... these women fought for it saying a woman should have a choice to keep a pregnancy or not ... they also made the creation and availability of prevention pills possible cos they also said a woman should have the right to get pregnant or not.... now that they have full liberty to either get pregnant or not or abort a child or not, they still blame men when they get pregnant...what nonsense...its now more of a choice to the type of men they want to get pregnant for , even if the man don't want to be with them or want a child... I am very sure she wudnt hv gotten pregnant if she was 4kin a looser... the question is that y is it that they never get pregnant for non celebs ...they will quickly go take pills if they don't want to get pregnant, but will not take pills if they want to get pregnant.... men should please rise up and stop these manipulation by women... we were brought up to take responsibility and protect women...they rejected it sighting that they should have the power to make their decisions by not forcing them to accept what they dont want... but u can all see that the same thing they fought against in the 40s and 50s is what they are promoting against men now ., forcing a man to have a child they dont want ... I start to de fear women when drake talked about how he usually pours a chemical in his used condom after sex to kill the semen inside and that chemical burns like hell... he said he dropped it in the bathroom and went bk to the bed , the lady that he was with , went to the bathroom and after a couple of mins , he heard loud screams , he rushed to the bathroom only to find out that the 4kin bitch poured the semen in the used condom inside her Vagina and it burnt her pvssy ... lets say drake wasn't smart enough... she will come out tomorrow to claim they were having unprotected sex...but no one will believe drake cos dna will show he is the father of her baby ... women are evil and manipulative...men should start talking and putting them in their place or this gender will ruin the male gender

The worst thing about this whole cheating saga is fact that a man that cheats will have done it several times with different women before eventually getting one of them pregnant. God knows how many women this man has slept with before getting exposed when this one got pregnant.
