Nollywood actress set free from smoking through praying with TB Joshua

In an interview with Nigerian Celebrity Magazine, ‘E24-7’, popular Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh revealed that she was set free from an addiction to smoking for 14 years through praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. The miracle came in a way she never even expected!

Here are excerpts from the interview:
It was also reported that you had quit smoking?
Yes I did.
How and when did you start smoking?
At the age of 13, I started smoking.
Have you quit for good and what made you quit, could it have been your health?
No, I didn’t quit by myself. I was watching a program on TV with Prophet T.B. Joshua and he was laying hands on people and praying for them. I love to watch his programs on Emmanuel TV. When he was praying, he said, ‘Lay your hands on the TV’ and I just laid my hands that day. I actually needed something else from God, not to quit smoking because I loved smoking; seriously, I loved it! However, after praying I sat back and I think I slept off. When I woke up, I took a stick of cigarette and I felt crazy. I couldn’t even imagine that I took it up to smoke in the first place. It felt like poison!
It takes long to quit smoking, I learnt it is a gradual thing, how did yours happen so suddenly?
From the little I have told you it wasn’t natural.
Have you ever encountered TB Joshua before?
No but I am always on his tail, I watch him every day, I write him every time I can, I tweet on him, I love him. I think that he is a person that influences my life positively in a lot of ways just through the TV alone and I can imagine myself being in his church, Oh my God!
Maybe you would go to his church soon?
I don’t want to; I don’t want to somersault but I love watching him on the television.
You don’t want him to touch you?
Of course, I want him to touch me but you know people just have different movements when under the anointing and the other thing kind of takes over. I am not saying that it is a shame to be delivered but I wouldn’t want to share that with the whole world, I would appreciate if someday I could see him privately. Click Here To Read More

Must TB Joshua sue BBC and SKY for defamation?

On 18th October, 2011 BBC released disturbing report about several recorded  deaths after the  HIV and Aids healing claims in various churches and disingenuously mentioned TB Joshua’s ministry as one of such ministries likely to encourage HIV and aids sufferers to drop their medication without proof, SKY news took on the challenge and sent undercover agents who had hidden cameras tucked in their jackets to SCOAN UK as AIDS sufferers, presumably because they felt the BBC report didn’t have a nice ring to it following their lack of real evidence to implicate SCOAN. Kind of like a competition between them on who would better cover the story. There was even section of the video where the news agents having recorded all they wanted to without being discovered confronted the church’s evangelists saying the message they were spreading was a dangerous one. And what message. The Message that “Jesus can Heal HIV and Aids”.


A balanced view on this case wouldn’t take this issue to be a personal challenge against TB Joshua, although that’s just what it looks like on the outside, but the fact is that the bigger picture comes across as being not just about TB Joshua, but a clear attack on the Healing power of Jesus Christ. The voice over for the video is heard to have said:

There is plenty of evidence that faith can help people deal with issues but here faith was being abused”

(Abuse here means actually believing and telling people that God can heal)
