Controversial Late TB Joshua’s Political and Celebrity Connections

Published

on

Despite the recent three-part documentary by the British Broadcasting Corporation’s ‘Africa Eye’ which has sparked controversies around late TB Joshua, alleging instances of rape, torture, and staged miracles within his church. In all the media storm, it’s essential to recall the interactions that some prominent people had with the late preacher over the years.

Late preacher TB Joshua wielded significant political influence in Africa, maintaining close relationships with elites across the continent. His spiritual guidance extended to numerous African heads of state, politicians, business executives, and celebrities. Notable figures seeking his counsel included former Ghanaian president John Evans Atta-Mills, Liberian president George Weah, former Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan, and late Tanzanian president John Magufuli.

In 2013, actor Jim Iyke visited the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in a viral video depicting his purported deliverance from an evil spirit. Iyke later clarified that desperation, driven by his mother’s illness, led him to seek healing at the church.

Actor Hanks Anuku attested to being healed of a mental illness after visiting SCOAN. However, concerns about his mental well-being surfaced in 2023 when pictures and videos showed him appearing unkempt.

Rapper and former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Munachi Abii, reportedly visited the church without disclosing her reasons. Singer Victor AD claimed that TB Joshua healed him of a skin disease at the age of six and helped cure his sister’s blindness and his mother’s gunshot injury.

Former Big Brother Naija contestants, Kesiena Adjekpovu (Kess) and Chukwuemeka Okoye (Frodd), expressed unwavering support for TB Joshua amid the documentary’s release. Frodd mentioned receiving a scholarship and daily allowance from the late preacher during his university days.
