Mrs. Lawal, mother of Oreifeoluwa Lawal, the four year old in the viral video asking her mother to calm down has explained the video.
Mrs. Lawal who spoke on a live television show on Thursday said she recorded the video as evidence to show the antics of the boy each time he does anything and wants to avoid punishment.
The mother said she ended not beating the boy eventually just as he had previously talked himself out of trouble
in the house.
The four year old has become famous in the last 24 hours the video surfaced.
