Okposo's manager did not reveal the cause of death and denied further comments on the singer’s demise. Multiple sources say that the artist slumped suddenly and died.

His death comes just months after the veteran singer managed to escape the cold hands of death in May, 2022, after being involved in a ghastly car accident while driving on the 3rd mainland bridge in Lagos, but according to Okposo, he was "saved from the hands of the devil and his cohorts."

Okposo was born on May 30, 1971. He was an international Nigerian gospel artist, music producer, Psalmist, and CEO of Zamar Entertainment.
