‘Vicki Royce beg, I was paid to accused Prophet TB Joshua of rape..


The accusation of sexual misconduct against Prophet T.B. Joshua, by one Vicki Royce has now taken a new twist with the admission of the lady involved that she was paid money to smear the name of the Prophet.

According to the Nigerian online portal The Pointer News , Vicki Royce, an upcoming singer based in Lagos State, confessed that “she was paid to carry out the evil act” in accusing Joshua of rape and experienced a mental breakdown ever since her name was embroiled in the scandal.

It would be recalled that shortly after the COZA rape scandal erupted, multiple Nigerian blogs carried the news alleging Royce was raped by Joshua in 2012, even though she didn’t specifically mention his name in the tweets where she recounted the purported assault.

Several days later, Royce retorted online that Joshua was not the one who abused her, although the story of his sordid involvement had already spread in the Nigerian social media sphere.

“I beg of you! I was paid to accuse you of rape,” Vicki is quoted as saying to Joshua after she was spotted deliriously ‘roaming’ the streets of Lagos. “Pray for me so that I can get better.”

The news comes on the heels of a viral video showcasing another prominent accuser of Joshua, Bisola Johnson, confessing to her own mental instability years earlier in Joshua’s church and ‘begging’ for his help.

It is not the first account of Joshua’s critics being paid to accuse him.

A video on Emmanuel TV’s YouTube channel detailing an ex-militant’s confession that he was recruited by a Nigerian church to badmouth Joshua in public crusades in exchange for monetary incentives has been viewed 200,000 times.

The cleric, who is known for his calm mien despite the numerous attacks levelled at him, has described his ‘haters’ as providing free advertisement for his ministry.

“Let people advertise you. Don’t fight back. If truly you are genuine, whatever people say about you – whether they condemn you or spoil your name – it is for your good. If truly you are sent by God, it will turn around to favour you,” he said.

Daily Devotion TAKE HEART By Prophet Racine -TB Joshua


In a message titled TAKE HEART, Prophet Racine quoted Exodus 14: 13 and other Daily Worshipbiblical passages to back up his teaching on the need to overcome fear. Prophet Racine told the congregation to realise that “fear is a thief of faith and hope” that “paralyses our potential by weakening our determination and willpower, preventing us from taking important decisions.” Before ending the sermon, Prophet Racine called for a faith-building song interlude, after which he told the congregation on the need to develop their relationship with the Holy Spirit. Thereafter, he went into the healing session and the Lord showed Himself mightily in the lives of worshippers.

Prophet T.B. Joshua breaks offering protocol


Prophet T.B. Joshua breaks offering protocol

A YouTube video from unconventional Nigerian prophet, T.B. Joshua, has surfaced, showing what it calls “the largest church offering never collected”.

On June 1st 2019, more than 15,000 gathered in the prestigious FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield, UK for an event dubbed the ‘Emmanuel TV UK Revival’.

In events of such nature, it is customary for attendees to pay a ticket fee and for the minister to also announce an offering – oftentimes more than once – in order to accrue financial support.

Joshua, however, broke the protocol. Although he was not physically present at the event, one of his ministers asked all present at the packed-out indoor stadium to rise in anticipation of a large-scale offering.

“It is true there is need for your offering here,” he said, adding that such acts did have Biblical backing. “But there are some of your neighbours who need this offering more than we do.”

To the bewilderment of the multinational congregants, he then asked everyone to rather use their intended offering to help a neighbour in need, stressing that such love should not be discriminatory but freely rendered to all “irrespective of religion, race, background or ethnicity.”

“See your contribution to others daily as an assignment from God… God measures our lives by our love for our neighbour,” he stressed, in a sermon titled ‘The Core Of God’s Message To Mankind’. “We are what we do, not only what we say – so match your actions with your words.”

The event, held at one of the UK’s primary sport and entertainment arenas, was free-entry – the first time in the venue’s history for organisers to make such a rare move.

“If you pay a fee to enter the event today, whatever you claim to receive is not from the love of God because healing, deliverance and miracles cannot be exchanged with whatever,” the minister from The SCOAN emphasised, as overflow crowds swarmed outside.

If, he added, any attendee still wished to provide support to the ministry, that decision should be “carefully examined in the light of God’s Word because love is a relationship” and not simply offered because of attendance at the event.

“Let it come from your heart,” he pointedly told the sombre audience – many of whom had travelled from as far as the Americas, Asia and Australia to participate.

The uncommon message, coupled with the remarkable miracles that unfolded thereafter, elicited lots of reactions on social media.

“I have NEVER seen a pastor refuse to collect an offering, most especially one in such a large event in a country like England, which would probably bring in millions,” Phil, a British attendee at the event, reflected on Instagram.

“For all pastors who act like businessmen in the ministry and preach more about prosperity than salvation, this is a big wake-up call,” Judith opined on Facebook, lamenting the intertwining of ministry and money-making which has led to scepticism and cynicism towards evangelical Christianity in many quarters.

The ‘revival’, streamed live on YouTube and Facebook, has already been viewed by over 250,000 people.

TB Joshua To Nigerians: Pray For President Buhari


International preacher and popular television evangelist and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, has called for special prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari and the nation of Nigeria.

The cleric made this known during a live broadcast, yesterday, at the international headquarters of the church at Ikotun Egbe, Lagos.

During the Sunday service, the man of God, as fondly called, stated that he was out to share a vision which he had a couple of weeks back in respect of President Muhammadu Buhari and the nation Nigeria.

He further advised that the prayers should be directed towards ensuring that God grants the president wisdom in directing the affairs of the nation. He continued, “Ask God to protect and fill him with wisdom enough to lead this nation. In my vision, I saw the seraphim coming down with rain. This rain comes with freshness and calmness. Nigeria, let us pray!”

TB Joshua To Nigerians: Pray For President Buhari

It will be recalled that the cleric had predicted the Venezuelan crisis and the postponement of Nigeria’s 2019 general election, just as he had told all that God was in control of the affairs of the nation.

He had indicated then that “be calm, there is no cause for alarm. Those who will cause trouble will see trouble. Those who want peace will see peace. There is no need to stock food.

After the election, there will be a lot of situations. When it is about to rain, the cloud will gather and it will become dark. But after the darkness comes light. But you will respect God after the election…If anything happens to Nigeria, that will be the end of Africa.”
