Multi-talented gospel artiste and Globacom ambassador, Sammie Okposo, is ready toÂ engage his fans again.
Four years after the release of his last album, No More Drama, the United NationsÂ Youth Ambassador for Peace is now ready for the release of his fourth album.
The album, which will hit the shelves in a couple of weeks, is a 12-track double CD.Â Some of the tracks on the albums are Praise Way featuring Bouqui, You Are Welcome,Â Jesu Remix featuring Memo, Big God, Celebrate, I Go Dance, Na So, God is Good, TurnÂ By Turn, Bless His Only Name and Amazing Love, among others.
On why it has taken him such a long time to do a follow up to his last album, OkposoÂ said he was only trying to maximise the potential of the last album. â€œWhenever anyÂ artiste releases an album, he or she should try as much as possible to maximise theÂ album to its highest potential. Along the line, I was involved in other projectsÂ which enhanced the sale of my last album. As a matter of fact, it also gives me theÂ opportunity to work on the new album I am about to release. It is one of the bestÂ decisions I have taken in my career,â€ he revealed.
He also spoke on why he is supporting President Goodluck Jonathan to becomeÂ Nigeriaâ€™s president come 2011.
â€œIâ€™m a citizen of Nigeria and I have the right to support whoever Iâ€™m convinced isÂ good for the job irrespective of my profession. Contrary to peopleâ€™s opinion that IÂ was paid for my recent political activities, it was not motivated by money. TheÂ money collected was my professional fee for producing those songs,â€ he said.
The two campaign songs currently running on different stations across the countryÂ drumming support for Goodluck Jonathan was written and produced by Okposo.
The new album will be released by Zamar Entertainment and distributed by EhbbiyÂ Ventures. It will be followed by an album unveiling concert and promotional tour ofÂ African countries, Europe and America.
