Temitope Balogun is a Nigerian actress. Joshua died on Saturday evening, a week before his 58th birthday on June 12th, at the age of 57.
According to close sources, he died not long after completing a presentation at his Lagos church.
The Church said in a statement shared on its official social media accounts,“God has taken His servant Prophet TB Joshua home – as it should be by divine will. His last moments on earth were spent in the service of God. This is what he was born for, lived for and died for… Prophet TB Joshua leaves a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that is living for generations yet unborn.”
TB Joshua’s ministry is known across the world for his television station, Emmanuel TV, which is owned and operated by the church and is one of Nigeria’s largest Christian broadcast channels available on digital and terrestrial channels.
His church was the subject of a multi-national investigation in 2014 after a part of his Lagos headquarters collapsed, killing scores of people and injuring many more.
Mr. Joshua vehemently disputed any wrongdoing, and a trial over the event was still ongoing at the time of his death.
Prior to the Nigerian event, one of his churches in Accra, Ghana’s capital, fell in 2013, killing four people.
He polarized public opinion in his home nation and throughout the world, with some questioning the authenticity of his prophetic ministry while others applauded and loved him.
He continued to serve healing and deliverance in his church for decades, attracting thousands of people from all over the world, including presidents and celebrities.
Former Ghanaian President, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, and former Black Stars goalkeeper, Richard Kingson, have all spoken at the SCOAN and shared their personal experiences.
