2. Hanks Anuku – smoking and drinking
Nollywood actor revealed that drugs and alcohol almost ruined his life and turned him into a mentally-ill person. He said:
"Yes, I got my healing through TB Joshua. It is our lord’s doing. I was having issues with my mentality for over seven years. You would have noticed that I have not been that frequent in Movies for a long time. Even when I was a Special Assistant to our dear Governor, I was not in a good state of mind and this affected my work in the Government House, before I was advised to seek for a solution in Ghana. I spent so much money visiting hospitals, orthodox and unorthodox doctors without positive results. Until I was introduced to TB Joshua. I was only watching his TV program in Ghana and was healed. I put my faith into it just like the woman with the issue of blood and knew that I would be healed and I got my healing. I am now a mentally stable man. I have dropped the drinking and smoking habit. Glory be to God."

Tonto shared her feelings after deliverance by TB Joshua in the following way:
"I’ve good news for those who wish me well. Its silly good news but ya’ll going to love this. I quit smoking! I didn’t quit smoking 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! 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!”
