News360 info reports that the music producer died on Friday morning at the age of 51.
According to a statement by Okposo’s family, they are consoled because they are convinced that the gospel singer is happy in heaven.

We are consoled because we know he is with Jesus singing with the angels.”
The statement added, “We kindly request that the family is allowed to grieve peacefully at this time.”

In the apology, the singer lamented over the incident which he noted happened in 2021.
The singer further stated that the development has seen him step aside from ministerial work until “full restoration.”
