Popular Gospel singer Sammie Okposo on Tuesday, January 25 shocked many when he tendered a public apology to his wife Ozioma and fans after admitting he cheated on her.
An American lady identified as African Doll had on Monday accused Okposo of impregnating and abandoning her.
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. Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgment is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day for the rest of my life.”
Speaking further, the ‘Wellu wellu’ crooner also apologized to everyone else he hurt, asking them to pray for him.
“To all that have been a part of my ministry, followed my ministry or know me personally, I am truly sorry for disappointing you. I regret any pain or disappointment that this news of my moral failure and poor judgement may cause you and I am truly sorry for disappointing you. I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me,” he wrote.
Nigerians have continued to react on the issue with many chastising the singer for bringing the issue on social media.
@Nenejones: Exemplary!!! I applaud you for this, although I think it’s unnecessary to bring it on here. Apologize to your wife, seek repentance from God who is the ultimate judge and that’s it. But it’s all good. Why do I have a feeling the lady wanted to blackmail him and he quickly took this route?
@Tobiloba: Some things are better left unsaid and off [email protected] [email protected] I don’t know when [email protected] [email protected] became a public judiciary. I have no idea why he was pushed to publicly apologise, it could be [email protected]!l or the [email protected] of GL investigating him
