TB Joshua, as he was known worldwide, was from Arigidi Akoko, Ondo State. His mother was Folarin Balogun while his father was Kolawole Balogun, a former translator. Joshua died on June 5, 2021, aged 57 after a church programme in Lagos. On June 14, 2018, the SCOAN founder posted a photo of his mother and himself on Instagram and said it was the last hug she gave him before her death. > “Let me pay a special tribute to my late mother, who always advised me to look into my love walk. Failing to do so can shut down our relationship with God. What a wonderful woman! She never failed to call us for prayer before going to bed,” he wrote. He followed it up on June 15, 2018, with a picture of his father who died when he was a child. > “I was a baby before the death of my father. Consequently, I knew nothing about my late father and the entire family burden rested squarely on my mother’s shoulders,” said Joshua. Joshua capped it on June 16 with a picture of the home where he grew up. > “I found myself in a simple and humble family background, lacking basic needs of life. I realised there was a force I could not resist which kept telling me to concentrate on my future because the situation in which I was then, was a preparation for my future,” he wrote. According to him, his past experiences were the reasons he did not “respond to criticisms, lying, falsehood, name-calling or slanderous remarks.” In 2011, Joshua was estimated by Forbes to be worth between $10 million and $15 million.
