British-American actor and model Sam Sarpong has unfortunately taken his own life aged just 40.
Back in 2010, Sarpong had played Nollywood actress Omoni Oboli’s husband in the ovie, Anchor Baby. He passed away on Monday, Oct. 26 after leaping to his death from a bridge. Sarpong was also co-host on MTV’s Yo Momma alongside Wilmer Valderrama and a model for Tommy Hilfiger. He was the face of the brand for several years. He also made fashion history by becoming the first black male model to do a Luis Vuitton editorial campaign.
Tributes have been pouring in on social media for Sam whom friends described as being ‘the life of the party’, someone who loved life and would face every day with ‘a smile on his face.’ Read what a devastated Omoni shared on her IG page after the cut. May Sarpong’s soul rest in perfect peace.
