Leading Nigeria’s gospel Artiste, Sammie Okposo has been nominated in the Best of Africa category at the biggest South-Africa Gospel Music awards-SABC Crown Music Awards which over the years has been adjourned to be the most prestigious and credible Gospel Music awards in Africa.
Okposo is the only Nigerian Artiste nominated for the awards and in the same category with four other celebrated African Gospel Artistes, Frank Chimpazi, Shongwe & Khuphuka, Saved Group and Seapour N.
Reacting to his nomination, the Sapele-born Singer described his nomination as a shock because he was not expecting it.
“Firstly, all thanks to God for his grace and excellent spirit. He is the only one that blesses a man and lifts him up. I am grateful for the nomination but for me it means more hard work. Many years after I won the Kora Awards Best Gospel Artiste in Africa, my works are still much in demand and here is another nomination as the Best of Africa Gospel Artiste. It’s an honour”, said Okposo.
The organisers also announced that Sammie Okposo will be performing at the event scheduled for November 23, 2014 Durban ICC Arena in South-Africa.
A big congratulations to Uncle Sammie.
