Nigerian gospel singer, Sammie Okposo has apologised to his wife and family for having an extramarital affair with an American based lady.
The music star took to his Instagram page on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, where he penned the apology.
“I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but 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,” he wrote.
“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 for His forgiveness.”
The Delta State-born singer went on to announce that he’ll be taking a break from the ministry’s work to seek restoration.
“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,” he added.
He then tendered an apology to his wife, Ozioma for the disgrace and embarrassment his actions caused.
“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,” he pleaded.
Okposo’s apology is coming barely 24 hours after a lady named ‘African Dull’ accused him of impregnating her.
According to the lady, she met the singer in Dallas, United States of America, during one of his tours.
They became close and started an affair which led to the pregnancy.
