Behind every true Nigerian (party) #Jollof, there’s an Ikoko-Irin from Sakí, Oyo state, Nigeria!


Today, when we devour the almighty Nigerian #Jollof, (or even Amala and fried meat) with ravishing delight during festive celebrations and many other celebrations across Nigerian homes, do you know we have a particular commodity to thank for it all? The Ikoko-Irin of Saki! – that aluminum cooking pot that takes in the fire at almost every pre-party spot or buka around town…

For an aeon of time, aluminum-smiths of Saki, translated APE’IRIN in Yoruba, have perfected the art of melting, turning, and transforming rubbles of aluminum into the internationally renowned and highly durable IKOKO-IRIN; so well, it has become the premium cultural, culinary and signature export of this town in the Oke-Ogun arm of Oyo state.

This cooking pot is famous for the native flavor it particularly adds to delicacies, especially, to the #NigerianJollof; more than the ingredients, it gives our delicacies this irresistible and inimitable signature oomph in taste.

From melting to forming and to solidification, the average time needed to make one Ikoko-Irin is about (just) 10 minutes. Here is a sneak peek into how it is all done, right from the heart of SAKI, #Oyo state!
