Temitope Balogun Joshua, popularly known as Prophet TB Joshua was a Nigerian charismatic pastor, televangelist, and philanthropist.
He was the leader and founder of Synagogue, Church of All Nations, a Christian megachurch that runs the Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos state Nigeria.
According to Wiki, Joshua was widely known across Africa and Latin America and had a large social media presence with over 6,000,000 fans on Facebook.
His YouTube channel, Emmanuel TV, had over 1,000,000 subscribers and was the most-viewed Christian ministry on the platform before the channel was suspended by YouTube in 2021 for alleged homophobic hate speech. Joshua was described by media outlets as the “Oprah of Evangelism” and “YouTube’s most popular pastor”.
He was married to Evelyn Joshua and had three beautiful children.
Unfortunately, he died on 5 June 2021 after one of his evening services in Lagos, Nigeria, just one week prior to his 58th birthday. No cause of death was given.
👉🏿I noticed something special about TB Joshua, even though i don’t believe in his prophecies and miracles. He was among the top 5 richest pastors in the world, yet he own just one Church building; unlike others pastors who has thousands of Churches all over the country and the world.
👉🏿He is the most widely recognized pastor in Nigeria. People travel from different parts of the world to worship in the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Lagos. Contributed to the growth of Nigeria economy.
👉🏿Always the young, the old and less privileges with cash, food, clothes and shelter. The best humanitarian in Africa I must say.
But despite all that, he was the most hated man of God in Nigeria. Did you know that his fellow pastors were literally rejoicing when they heard he was no more? Yes! Only few sent condolences to the family. The rest including Adeboye, Oyedepo, Chris kept mute till date, not even a single tribute. It’s obvious they hate him. But WHY?
Why Did Nigerian Men Of God Hate Prophet TB Joshua So Much?
Let’s hear from you all.
