“I’ve Moved With Friends Who Ended As Robbers” – Sammie Okposo

Multi-award winning Gospel artist, Sammie Okposo reminisces on his past in a chat with Punch’s Saturday Beats. He shares how he abandoned his Christian upbringing for what the world has to offer.

The producer, psalmist, entertainment consultant to mention but a few revealed how he shunned the Christian background he had as a child to explore the world and how he even ended up with the “wrong crowd” who later became highway robbers.

“I did not do any of the crazy stuff like drugs but I was generally stubborn and I moved with the wrong set of people who almost lured me into a wrong environment. I have been around guys who ended up becoming highway robbers,” he says.

The singer continues, “My mother would tell me that she did not like the guys I moved with. When we got out of school, one day I turned on the television only to see that those my friends were wanted by law enforcement agents who later caught up with some of them and they are dead. It made me ask myself, what if I had followed those guys? I would probably have been dead by now.”

The Gospel music superstar also revealed how much his parent where heart broken when he told them he wanted to go into music, saying:

“When I returned home, my parents were very glad because they had been praying for me. They were happy because they did not have to identify my body if anything had gone wrong. However, they were not very happy that I ventured into music because my father wanted me to be an accountant.

. “Twenty years ago, you could not tell your parents you wanted to be a musician. Of all the awards I have received in my life, the biggest would be when my father looked at me and told me he was proud of me before he died.”

Sammie Okposo is preparing what looks like a collaboration with singers Tim Godfrey, Onos and Nikki Laoye . Although none of the parties have said more than “something is about to happen,” the Mindustry is already anticipating earnestly.
