Self proclaimed Nigerian prophet TB Joshua has come under scathing attack after his ‘prophecy’ on the US election fell flat.
On Sunday, Joshua revealed that God had showed him who the next US president will be. “Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win,” he said. “(There will be) attempts to possibly pass a vote of no confidence… In order not to keep you in suspense, what I frankly saw is a woman.”
Here’s a clip from that summon.
That message was subsequently followed by a post on his verified Facebook page with over 2.5 million fans. The post has now been deleted but not before screenshots were taken.
TB Joshua has always been a controversial figure with numbers divided on whether he is a true prophet or just a pretender. But after the latest debacle, there is consensus that he is just another ‘false prophet’ who uses ambiguous statements then claims prior knowledge whenever an event occurs. This one time he went against the script and the results are disastrous.
It is quite clear he looked at the opinion polls like everyone else to make an educated guess.
Fans have not stopped roasting him since Trump was announced the winner. Here are some tweets.
People: TB Joshua u said a woman will win
TB Joshua : u people didn't hear me clearly, I said woolman, the person his head looks like wool ?

Dear TB Joshua. Who gave you your prophecy? My God is not a man that He would lie neither is He the son of man that He would repent!

There have been multiple attempts to expose TB Joshua as a conman, but his following’s growth has not slowed. In light of these events however, it will be keen to see how he holds up.
Here’s a YouTube video revealing how he fools his congregation.
It would have been ideal if Kenyan ‘prophets’ led by David Owuor would have given their prophecies on the just concluded US election. That way we would have weighed them on the same scale. But I bet moving forward they’ll be careful to avoid specifics.
So now, do you believe TB Joshua is a true prophet?
