Ibadan, ilu olokiki, ilu oloye!

I come from the ancient city of Ibadan. I am a citizen of the world and wherever I go, whatever I be, I will not forget my origin – the city of Ibadan.

I am proud of my heritage and very appreciative for my upbringing.

Ibadan,
ilu olokiki,
ilu oloye,
ilu onimo, ilu olola, ilu olowo.

Sikiru Ayinde Barrister

Ibadan,
running splash of rust
and gold — flung and scattered
among the seven hills like broken
china in the sun.

J.P Clark-Bekederemo (b.1935)
