How TB Joshua died 3 days after cancelling his 58th birthday celebration on June 12

Popular Nigerian televangelist, Temitope Balogun Joshua, better known as T. B. Joshua, died on Saturday, June 5th, 2021.

Joshua reportedly died in Lagos on Saturday evening shortly after concluding a programme at his church.

The cause of his death has not yet been revealed as his family or church are yet to release official statement.

Born on June 12, 1963, Joshua would have been 58 years old this coming Saturday.

The charismatic pastor who is known to always celebrate his birthday in his church, had few days ago announced that the occasion won't hold this year.

He had told his church members on Wednesday that his 58th birthday celebration won't hold on June 12, 2021, because the insecurity challenges in Nigeria are dissuading people from visiting the country.

The televangelist and philanthropist had called on Nigerians to rather fast and pray for the country especially on June 12, which also happens to be Nigeria's Democracy Day.

"As you know, I am a man of the people. So, the wound of one is the wound of all.

“As things stand, you may have realised it will not be easy for me to celebrate my birthday under the present circumstances. Many who wanted to visit Nigeria for the occasion are troubled by the situation all over the world.

“We see their fear and their worry. I feel their pain; I feel their worry so pray for Nigeria on June 12, 2021.

“Let us dedicate this day to prayer and fasting. Don’t forget the needy,” he urged.

Prophet TB Joshua was the founder of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), a Christian megachurch that runs the Emmanuel TV television station from Lagos, Nigeria.
