The Haven Nation, an Ibadan-based church, has enlisted Gbadamosi Ismail, an evangelist who inspired the viral ‘lori iro’ video, for its Valentine buffet service.


Tomiwa Oluyen, lead pastor of the church, broke the news in a post on his Instagram page on Friday.

“An awesome privilege to be hosting Evang Ismail Gbadamosi a.k.a Baba Lori Iro @evangismail live this Sunday at THN church. Valentine Buffet Service 1.0. It’s Gonna Be Fantabulous. Service Starts 9am GMT. Venue: Shammah Hall, Opposite Henry Tee Motors, Ring Road Ibadan,” the post read.

In the same vein, Ismail also announced the programme to his fans, adding that such a platform would enable him to share the gospel on Valentine’s Day.

“Nothing gives me joy more than having an opportunity to share the good news, especially on a strategic day like Valentine’s day!” he wrote.

“I eagerly look forward to this Valentine Buffet service @thnchurch with Pastor @oluyentomiwa.Time is 9am, I will like to see you there!”


The preacher has continued to make the headlines since a video of him preaching about common deceptive words and phrases used by parties involved in a relationship surfaced online.

He recently joined the social media and has garnered over 5,000 followers on Instagram — a few days after opening an account.

The evangelist had earlier described his sudden rise to fame as a dream while appreciating his fans.

“It’s still like a dream, but this is the best dream anyone can have! I appreciate all of you my followers, may God’s presence never depart from you now and forever! I love you all….this is not #loriiro,” he had said.
