According to reports, 51-year-old Okposo slumped and died on Friday morning.

The popular singer’s death comes months after he was embroiled in an adultery scandal.

The ‘Wellu Wellu’ crooner, in a lengthy Instagram page, urged Nigerians to pray for him.

He admitted cheating on his wife when he travelled to the US in late 2021.

The 51-year-old also suspended himself from all ministry work until full restoration as he sought forgiveness from God.

Okposo was also a music producer, psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment.

He released his first album Addicted in 2004.

He bagged multiple awards including KORA Best Gospel Artiste in Africa (2006), Crown SABC Best of African Gospel (2014), Afro Hollywood UK Best Gospel Artiste (2005), NEA Best Gospel Artiste of the Year (2007&2013), and NMA Best Contemporary Gospel Artiste among others.

The singer was in the eye of the storm in January when he offered a public apology to his wife, Ozioma for alleged infidelity.

The apology came a day after a lady, known only as African Doll, accused him of impregnating and abandoning her.

The gospel musician told his fans that he would be taking a step back from his ministry to focus on restoration and seek forgiveness.

In the heat of the public conversation on the alleged infidelity, he removed himself from public spaces by deactivating his social media platforms but returned later.

Details of the circumstances surrounding his death are still sketchy but it was gathered he slumped on Friday morning in his residence
