Sammie Okposo, a popular gospel singer, apologized publicly to his wife, Ozioma, and his fans on Tuesday after admitting to cheating on her.
The Wellu Wellu master, as he is affectionately known, turned to Instagram to explain that he was in an intimate connection with another woman when he traveled to the United States.
Read the full apology below:
He wrote in the caption, “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 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.
“To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you.
“Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgement is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day forth.
This comes less than 24 hours after African Doll, an American lady, accused the musician of impregnating her.
The woman reported this to a YouTuber on Obodo Oyibo TV on Monday, claiming that Okposo abandoned her after she informed him of her pregnancy.
