If gospel singer Sammy Okposo had thought his nearly needless public apology would turn the tide of trouble from him over his indiscreet adultery with a lady referred to as the African Doll in the United States, he was grossly mistaken.
African Doll, the US-based love interest of Okposo had come out to say the pastor and gospel singer was responsible for her pregnancy and contrary to Okposo’s suggestion, she will not be getting an abortion.
She had on Monday called out the singer, saying she didn’t require him to bow to her but turning his back on her is wrong.
”We both know that we didn’t use protection. We both know that we were wrong. There is still a way to handle things. He didn’t handle it right. I am not saying he has to bow to me but there is a way you do things. Turning your back on me is wrong. Any woman on earth won’t feel okay about it. It doesn’t feel good to be abandoned or to be thrown to the side. I cannot be walking around thinking about it, life goes on,” she told Obodo Oyinbo TV.
Despite the less than sterling behavior of the “Wellu Wellu” master, African Doll says she has her plans for her unborn child: “I will keep the baby, I don’t really believe in abortion. Fornication is a sin. The bible says he who is without sin should cast the first stone. It is not my intention to hurt anybody but to bring life to the situation.”
I Have Sinned- Sammy Okposo
This revelation may not have caught Okposo unawares as he immediately issued a public apology to his wife, confessing to an intimate relationship with a lady in the United States and suspending himself from ministry work “until full restoration.”
The singer apology read: “Dear Friends, I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but know that this is the right thing to do.
“On my recent trip to the USA (Late 2021), I got intimately involved with a lady, knowing that this was not appropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel. I am ashamed and regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife, Ozioma, my family and me.
“As I work in making peace with God, repenting and asking His forgiveness, I am suspending myself from all ministry work until full restoration as this is what is proper and what I know I owe God and His people.
“To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you.
“Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgement is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day forth.”
“I want to take this moment and apologise to all fathers and mothers of the Faith and ministers of the Gospel for my behavior and moral failure.
“I won’t be here if not for your investment and belief in what God has called me to do. I sincerely apologize for this embarrassing situation.
“To all that have been a part of my ministry, followed my ministry or know me personally, I am truly sorry for disappointing you.
“I regret any pain or disappointment that this news of my moral failure and poor judgement may cause you and I am truly sorry for disappointing you.
“I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me.”
