Nigeria’s Prophet TB Joshua has warned his followers of increasing number of impostors, fraudsters and fake TB Joshua ministries’ pages on social media.
A quick monitoring on social media platforms like Facebook by this publication found that some of the fake pages have over a hundred thousand followers.
Some of the fake pages demand people to type amen on the posts and/or to share posts in order for them to be healed and receive prophetic blessings.
“All other accounts claiming to be TB Joshua, The SCOAN or Emmanuel TV are FAKE and FRAUDULENT” proclaims.
Temitope Balogun Joshua, widely known as TB Joshua, is a Nigerian pastor, televangelist and philanthropist, is the leader and founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and its corresponding channel, the Emmanuel TV station, a satellite television channel that airs his prophecies live to millions worldwide.
TB Joshua Ministries Prayers is one of the leading fake pages with one hundred and thirty five thousand followers.

Another posts read: “This week..God will rewrite your story..Yes, i am talking to you. 3days to come, a great Testimony will hit the person that will type Amen & Share in seconds”.
The fake page uses the same profile picture of TB Joshua used on his official Facebook page.
Joshua is one of Africa’s most popular prophets, described by others as the Oprah of evangelism.
He hit international headlines in 2014 when SCOAN’s six-storey guesthouse suddenly collapsed and killed about 115 people, 84 of them South Africans.
Joshua’s much-publicised prophecy concerning the death of Malawian President Bingu Mutharika garnered intense media attention and was subsequently the subject of a Malawian government inquiry as his successor, Joyce Banda, is a devotee of the cleric.
