“Lori iro”, which literally means “On top lies”, found its way into the utterances of the multitude following a short video of a preacher seen to be calling attention of people to some quotidian words deceitfully used by parties in a relationship, especially as valentine day approaches.
“Lori iro, you’re my chocolate, lori iro, you’re my sugarcane, lori iro, you’re my onion, lori iro, you’re my biscuits, lori iro, you’re my puff puff, lori iro, you’re my rodo, you’re my tomato lori iro, iro po… Lie lie lovers…” The man could be heard saying in the short footage.
