Sammie, the gospel singer, died on November 25. He was first said to have slumped at his home in Lagos.

However, Hillary Vincent, his project manager, insisted that the musician died in his sleep.

In an Instagram post, Alula mourned her father in what became her first public comment since the singer passed away.

“The real truth is I feel like a blank sheet of paper, just waiting for the different strokes from the paint brushes,” she wrote.

“God knows best because I know you’re definitely jamming with the angels; changing it for them.”
