Ikorodu Heritage - Poem by Adewale Ajakanri
Ilu kekere oko ilu bantata
Ikorodu, the land of the free
With so many people of class
Which makes us sounds like Kings and Queens
Yes! Kings and Queens
Our ancestors were kings and Queens
And ruled Ikorodu land with strength and pride
From Ojubode to Etunrenren, Epadi, Oju Ogbe to Ireshe, Eluke street, Ayangburen road to Aga titun, Agbele, Eruwen, Solomade, Eyita, Agbala, Lowa, Oke Ota Ona, Ladega, Ejina to the western part and Northern part
We are all kings and Queens
Our Ancestors were proud, strong and fierce regardless they preserved
We are strong, we fight hard
We fight for justice and no one is feared
We are the product of the struggle
And the determination of the country
We represent, we make our ancestors proud
We always know 'We Can'
We set goals and we aim high
Our limitations fall beyond the sky
No one defines or set boundaries for us
We strive to always be the best that we can
Our Personality is strong, bold and loud
United we stand
We run towards our future, we lead the crowd
Just the way Oba Kabiru Adewale Shotobi has led the town of Ikorodu to Glory
Just that same way 'Ibrahim Olukotun' has led Aga to a greater development
And many Kings and Queens are also leading us to glory
Ikorodu, a town of trading and farming
We never settle for less
We know our worth, We deserve the best
We are Ikorodu Oga, descendant of a distant land
Our ancestors remains Kings and Queens
Owners of farm land, lands and other fine resources
Do you follow or lead the crowd?
Do you set goals and aim high?
Do you realize your limitations fall beyond the sky?
Knowing our past prepares us for our future, prepares us to fight, press and endure
Join us preserve Ikorodu, we know you can
After all we are ikorodu Oga..
