Prophet TB Joshua’s popularity exceeds that of Buckingham Palace and The Tower of London – Uk Guardian
According to the UK Guardian, Prophet T.B. Joshua is more popular than some famous London landmarks including, The Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.
The Guardian’s West African correspondent Monica Mark, filed this report:
“In Africa’s largest metropolis, Lagos, the district of Ikotun Egbe has turned into a boom town. The draw? Temitope Balogun Joshua, one of Nigeria’s richest “super-pastors”, whose church attracts 50,000 worshippers weekly – more than the combined number of visitors to Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.” The article titled, “Lagos businesses cash in on lure of super-pastor TB Joshua”,describes the enterprising antics of local businessmen and hoteliers who are utilising Joshua’s popularity and the scores of foreign worshippers flocking weekly to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).Sparkling new hotels rise incongruously among the shacks. At one, a new chef has recently been employed. ‘He can cook food from Singapore, because we were having a lot of guests from there who struggle with Nigerian food,’ says the manager, Ruky, at a reception desk framed by pictures of Joshua.”
