The Leader and Founder of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), a Christian megachurch that runs the Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos – Prophet Temitope Joshua, popularly known as Prophet TB Joshua, dies at 57 six days to his 58th birthday according to social media posts on his official Instagram account and news reports.

Prophet TB Joshua reportedly died on Saturday night in Lagos after concluding a programme at his church.

According to the post on his Instagram page, Prophet TB Joshua spoke during the Emmanuel TV Partners Meeting which held on Saturday 5th June 2021, saying “Time for everything – time to come here for prayer and time to return home after the service.”

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.

As Prophet TB Joshua says, “The greatest way to use life is to spend it on something that will outlive it”.

Prophet TB Joshua leaves a legacy of service and sacrifice to God’s Kingdom that is living for generations yet unborn.

The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and Emmanuel TV Family appreciate your love, prayers and concern at this time and request a time of privacy for the family.

Here are Prophet TB Joshua’s last words: “Watch and pray.” One life for Christ is all we have; one life for Christ is so dear.

During his lifetime, Prophet TB Joshua’ YouTube channel (Emmanuel TV) had over 1,000,000 YouTube subscribers and was the world’s most viewed Christian ministry on the platform before it was suspended in April.

He was awarded various accolades, notably receiving the Officer of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR) by the Nigerian government in 2008  and being voted the Yoruba man of the decade by Pan-Yoruba media outlet Irohin-Odua.

He was called one of Africa’s 50 most influential people by Pan-African magazines The Africa Report and New African Magazine.

As of 2011, according to Forbes, Joshua was Nigeria’s third-richest pastor,  although the claim was immediately denied in a statement by the church.  He was known to be controversial, described as the “Oprah of Evangelism”  and “YouTube’s most popular Pastor”
