In an interview with Nigerian Celebrity Magazine, ‘E24-7’, popular Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh revealed that she was set free from an addiction to smoking for 14 years through praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. The miracle came in a way she never even expected!
Here are excerpts from the interview:
It was also reported that you had quit smoking?
Yes I did.
How and when did you start smoking?
At the age of 13, I started smoking.
Have you quit for good and what made you quit, could it have been your health?
No, I didn’t quit by myself. I was watching a program on TV with Prophet T.B. Joshua and he was laying hands on people and praying for them. I love to watch his programs on Emmanuel TV. When he was praying, he said, ‘Lay your hands on the TV’ and I just laid my hands that day. I actually needed something else from God, not to quit smoking because I loved smoking; seriously, I loved it! However, after praying I sat back and I think I slept off. When I woke up, I took a stick of cigarette and I felt crazy. I couldn’t even imagine that I took it up to smoke in the first place. It felt like poison!
It takes long to quit smoking, I learnt it is a gradual thing, how did yours happen so suddenly?
From the little I have told you it wasn’t natural.
Have you ever encountered TB Joshua before?
No but I am always on his tail, I watch him every day, I write him every time I can, I tweet on him, I love him. I think that he is a person that influences my life positively in a lot of ways just through the TV alone and I can imagine myself being in his church, Oh my God!
Maybe you would go to his church soon?
I don’t want to; I don’t want to somersault but I love watching him on the television.
You don’t want him to touch you?
Of course, I want him to touch me but you know people just have different movements when under the anointing and the other thing kind of takes over. I am not saying that it is a shame to be delivered but I wouldn’t want to share that with the whole world, I would appreciate if someday I could see him privately.
You seem to have a different impression of that man of God; compared to what is in a section of the media. What do you think is wrong?
First of all I have a very good Christian orientation and something that I know that the Bible has taught me is that we don’t have to talk about men of God, no matter what they are doing, whether it is wrong or right it is not in my place. I am following him because I think he is following Jesus. I just love him because he is a man of God and he has specially affected my life and my friends too, not just me sources
