Lori iro’ is a Yoruba phrase which means “based on lies” in English.

“You’re honey, lori iro, my biscuit, lori iro, my chocolate, lori iro, my tomato, lori iro, my onion, lori iro, my puff puff, lori iro, my sugarcane, lori iro… they’re lies. Lie lie lovers are now rampant. Too much lies,” he had said in a mixture of English and Yoruba.

He is currently on Twitter and Instagram wherein he shared other short clips of himself preaching.

“I am Evangelist Gbadamosi Ismail, I preach the gospel with all that I have and all that I am! Hence the many nicknames e.g. Baba Lie Lie, Evang. lro po etc,” his bio on Twitter read.

In one of the posts on his Instagram page, he appreciated those who have been supporting him since his video went viral, describing his sudden rise to fame as a dream.
