CAN, Chris Morgan React To Death Of Gospel Singers In 2022

Within the last eight months, the Nigerian gospel music industry has witnessed the death of three of its prominent members.

The death of the singers including Chinedu Nwadike, Osinachi, and Sammie Okposo under different circumstances in March, April, and November respectively sparked reactions both online and offline.

Reacting to the recent death of the 'Welu Welu' singer, the former spokesperson for the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Reverend Bayo Oladeji, described Okposo's death as unfortunate, noting that death has no regard for anyone, irrespective of their profession or position in the society.

He however asked, “When prominent people die, people take note of it, but do you know the number of lawyers, doctors, policemen, soldiers, politicians and citizens that have also died within this same period?”

Oladeji further urged the public to hold their health in high esteem, advising that they “always speak out when you are sick or facing some challenges. I know that God is our healer, but then we need to have a physical doctor that attends to us.”

Renowned Nigerian Gospel singer, Chris Abah Ochogwu Morgan, popularly known as Chris Morgan, in an interview with Daily Post, expressed a belief that the deceased singers were summoned to eternity by God, maintaining that anything that happened to humanity got approval from God. 

“Jesus did just 30 years with three years of active ministry, and he went home at 33 just for the sake of humanity. 

"So, I believe that the legacy that Sammie Okposo and Osinachi left behind is a legacy that is evergreen.

“They were warriors that fought the battle of this life and conquered and impacted their generation, so that’s the greatest legacy that we should keep in our heart apart from the pain and all of the things that they went through on earth serving humanity.”

Nwadike reportedly died of heart cancer on March 27. Osinachi Nwachukwu died on April 8 due to complications from domestic violence allegedly meted on her by her husband, Peter Nwachukwu.

Also, Okposo was said to have died in his sleep on November 25.
