Gospel singer Sammie Okposo has been caught up in a nasty infidelity scandal after impregnating his U.S-based lover.

Okposo, who tendered a public apology to his wife and the gospel ministry in a statement posted on his official Instagram handle on Tuesday, explained how he met his lover, popularly known as African Doll, on a trip to the USA last year.

The public apology is coming 24 hours after African Doll accused him of impregnating and abandoning her.

According to African Doll, Sammie Okposo the gospel singer stopped “being lovely and kind to her like he did during their sexual exploits after he found out she was pregnant.

Sammie Okposo has begged for his wife’s forgiveness for breaking their marital trust, and asked his leaders in the Gospel Ministry to forgive him and continue to pray for him.

He wrote: “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.”

Meanwhile, the U.S-based lover has promised to keep and nurture the baby as she doesn’t believe in abortion.
