Nigerian Gospel singer, Sammie Okposo has publicly rendered an apology to his wife for cheating on her.
In a post on Instagram, the 51-year old singer said the act took place during a trip to the United States.
Calling his affair an “unfortunate incident”, Sammie Okposo stated that he was ashamed of his actions and regrets them, especially after it has caused a lot of pain to his wife, Ozioma and his family.
“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,” the singer wrote.
Apologising to his wife, Sammie Okposo stated that he was sincerely sorry that he put her through a 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,” he added.
His apology comes 24 hours after an American-based woman had accused him of impregnating her.
Speaking to a YouTuber on Obodo Oyibo TV, she revealed that Okposo had abandoned her after she told him about the pregnancy.
Meanwhile, Sammie Okposo has indicated that he will be leaving all ministry work until his full restoration; explaining that that was the proper decision to take.
“To all those 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 added.
Since he posted his apology, Okposo has put his Instagram account on private.
