Ibadan, Oyo State-based preacher, Gbadamosi Ismail, who recently became famous after a video of him preaching about lies that lovers tell to one another; in the video, he kept repeating the phrase, Lori Iro (based on lies) and that act has gone viral.
The preacher in a chat with Sunday scoop has now revealed he didn’t know he was being recorded while carrying out his evangelism work.
“It is the work of God. I was only doing evangelism. As a matter of fact, I don’t know who recorded the video.”
“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.”
“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 how he intends to take advantage of 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.”
The preacher also noted that he does not currently have a church of his own, he has plans to do that in future as God had shown him a vision in that regard.
