Madam Saje faults BBC documentary allegations against TB Joshua


Veteran actress Madam Saje, also known as Fausat Balogun, has offered her response to the scathing three-part BBC documentary about the late Prophet TB Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations. 

The documentary, published on January 8, contained allegations of sexual assault and rape against Joshua.

BBC Africa Eye, which conducted the investigation, claimed to have interviewed 16 former disciples of Joshua who provided firsthand testimonies of sexual assault or rape. 

The report detailed instances where trusted disciples were allegedly ordered to help identify new victims, forming an informal group referred to as the “fishing department.” One disciple, Victoria, shared her experience of being coerced into joining this group.

According to the documentary, Jessica Kaimu, now a broadcast journalist in Namibia, claimed she was raped by Joshua in his penthouse bathroom when she was just 17 years old and a virgin within weeks of becoming a disciple.

Additionally, former disciples alleged that they were made to work long hours without pay, running all aspects of SCOAN, and experiencing routine sleep deprivation.

In response to these allegations, Madam Saje defended the late televangelist’s legacy, asserting that it cannot be tarnished by what she referred to as “dirty lies.” 

She shared one of Joshua’s sermons on social media, expressing her belief in his positive impact, stating, “So true! You touched many lives, fought a good fight, stood till the end, and established a great and enduring legacy. No man or institution can destroy it with dirty lies: not even the BBC! Rest in peace, Joshua. We are and shall always be very proud of you.”
