Vincent refuted the claim in an interview with Punch, revealing that Sammie Okposo passed away peacefully.

“It is not true that Sammie slumped and died. That report is false. At the right time, the family will set the

records straight. But, I can tell you authoritatively that he did not slump. Rather, he just did not wake up from his sleep.
As regards the funeral arrangements, the details will be made known by the family. But right now, they are still in grief and mourning the departed singer.”

According to him, there was no longer love in the church and a lot of people judged him when the news of his cheating scandal broke out.

“Now they post his pictures…but never reached out in his trying times..
He told me what pastors did to him and we both wept..
Love has left the church..
We have more ‘lawyers’ who are ready to judge than intercessors ready to restore..
Rest in power my brother..
You conquered!”
