The slang “soro soke werey” is literally a Yoruba language and can be easily translated to English by a Yoruba speaker to mean ‘speak louder madman/woman.’
However, the meaning is deeper than mere translation as the slang means one should take a stand and stop speaking with both side for your mouth.
