"Sammie Okposo in his lifetime was a force, and he did a lot for the growth of gospel music in Nigeria and beyond. We are not a music award, but we feel the need to honour him in some way. This was what inspired us to rename the best soundtrack category after him. His loss will be felt, but all this is just a way to immortalize him," BON Award founder, Seun Ololetuyi noted.

Until his death, Okposo was a force to be reckoned with. Pulse wishes his soul eternal rest.
