Before the New Millenium, Evangelist Bisola Hephzibah Johnson, a disciple of TB Joshua cried out about the series of abuse she endured in the Synagogue Church of All Nations for fourteen years. She lived in the church premises and worked as the head of video editor.

In 2017, Bisola published a book on TB Joshua titled ‘The TB Joshua I Know: Deception of The Age Unmasked’ and in 2019, she published another book titled ‘Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Visit The Synagogue ‘Church of All Nations’. 

The books on the late TB Joshua gave an insight into the true nature and life of the pastor. Bisola was conversant with a lot of information many could only dream of knowing. She unearths the reality of what goes on behind the scenes of TB Joshua’s televised miracles as broadcast on his TV station, Emmanuel TV. This raises an eyebrow as many travel far and wide to receive their fair share of miracles.

Late broadcaster and investigative journalist Kola Olawuyi conducted a series on his radio program ‘Nkan Mbe.’ During this series, he interviewed numerous former backroom staff and members of the SCOAN who unveiled a range of alleged atrocities, including claims of occultism within the church.

Did Bisola’s books dent TB Joshua’s image? 


Alas! he was an influential religious figure and one of Africa’s wealthiest pastors who enjoyed everything influence could bring.  In 2011, American business magazine, Forbes named him as one of the richest pastors in Africa.

It is worth noting that Bisola has been on her truth long before TB Joshua’s death on 5th June 2021.
