Meanwhile, the Best of Nollywood (BON) Awards organisers have renamed the best Soundtrack in a movie category after the late ‘Wellu Wellu‘ singer, who was characterised as a general in God’s army who took the gospel outside the church throughout his lifetime.
The organizers made the last-minute change to ensure that the 2022 edition, which will take place on Saturday, December 3, in Owerri, Imo State, is truly memorable.
‘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.
