Gospel artiste Sammie Okposo has publicly apologised to his wife Ozioma after cheating on her.

“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,” begged Okposo. “I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day forth.”

He admitted getting “intimately involved” with a lady in the U.S. last year.

The music artist took to his Instagram page to confess his recent extramarital affair, tendering a public apology to his wife and family.

Explaining what happened, he wrote, “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.”

Okposo acknowledged that he was ashamed and “regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife, Ozioma, my family and I.”

The artiste further claimed he was currently working on “making peace with God and repenting.” 

He also disclosed that he would suspend himself “from ministry work.”
