Popular preacher, Gbadamosi Ismail, who went viral after he was spotted preaching the gospel about lies that lovers tell to one another, repeating ‘lori iro (based on lies)’, a phrase which went viral in the video has said the particular sermon was not made because of the Valentine.
Speaking in an interview after he became an internet sensation, the Ibadan, Oyo-based preacher said, “It is the work of God. I was only doing evangelism. As a matter of fact, I don’t know who recorded the video.”
He added, “I was not even aware that Valentine’s Day was approaching. However, my advice to people is that they should repent and retrace their steps back to God. A lot of things in society have gone bad. Everything is now upside down. There is no truth or honesty anymore. People should start being truthful and honest.”
On how women can avoid being deceived by lies told by men, Ismail said, “If a woman does not see prospects in a man, she would not follow such man. A lady would rather go with someone that has a car, rather than someone who is riding a bicycle. They love men who are ready-made; they don’t want to suffer with any man. Whenever I am doing evangelism, women often ask me different questions related to this. Also, men should be more truthful. Even when they lie to woo the women, they should start telling the truth afterwards. They should not spend all their time at drinking joints and lie to their wives that something else held them down. The only way a marriage can last is if it has a foundation of truth.”
On his newfound fame, Ismail said, “I am open to invitations to preach in churches. I will continue doing my evangelism on social media because that is what God called me to do.”
