Popular gospel singer, Buchi Atuonwu has disclosed the last conversation with colleague, Sammie Okposo before his sudden demise.
Naija News reports that the renowned gospel singer died on November 25, 2022.
It was gathered that the music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment, slept and never woke up.
Taking to his Instagram on Friday, Buchi in a lengthy post talked about the late gospel singer’s devotion to music, his love for God and his personal struggles.
The singer maintained that rather than paying tribute to late Sammie who would neither see nor acknowledge the post, he would rather talk about the conversation he had with the latter before his death.
What I Said To Sammie Before He Departed
In a message tittled ‘WHAT TOLD SAMMIE OKPOSO BEFORE HE PASSED’, Buchi wrote: ” ‘Why haven’t you made a post for Sammie since he passed?’ Sammie will not see the post,’ has been my answer to this question… several times lately. “That’s the exasperating thing about these post-humous posts.
“They’re not like birthday greetings. We’re not expecting that in a few days, the guy would post a thank-you message appreciating all who took out time to ‘felicitate with me on the occasion of my passing..’ Let me share with you, instead, what said to Sammie in one of our conversations; and I’m so glad and grateful to God that was able to speak these words to him before he departed.
“God’s trusted warhorse! Weather-beaten, rugged warhorse. Those were my first words as we embraced. At that, he flashed a generous smile, his brilliant white teeth, contrasting sharply with his dark (more like black) face. God trusts you, Sammie. God trusts you so much.”
Speaking further, the 59-year-old noted that even in his secular dealings, Sammie never failed to spread the gospel or talk about Jesus.
He wrote: “All these secular dealings and places wey you de enter, you have never hidden the name of Jesus. I’ve never heard that you got on any of those platforms and changed your songs. Na so so Jesus Jesus you de shout.”
People God Showed Mercy Shouted For Another To Be Crucified
Addressing Sammie cheating scandal, Buchi added: “You’re a terribly misunderstood person. I Know say you waka rough. The last mess wey you mess never smell finish. But na you dem catch, no mean say na you do pass. No lie down where you fall. Get up and move on.”
“Many have failed God in many ways. Their failings may be in financial, s3xual or emotional infidelity, greed, anger management, lying etc.
People who God has shown mercy and spared are shouting for another to be crucified! Harsh judges of our frailties. If you listen to the crowd, you may not hear God.”
Naija News reports that the Okposo died at age 51.
