Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has enthusiastically declared Yoruba parties as the epitome of celebration. Sharing her recent experience at a colleague’s birthday party, she recounted the remarkable moments.
Mercy Aigbe expressed her delight in being served a delectable dish of Hot Amala, accompanied by an array of assorted meats, all presented in a traditional ‘Ikoko Irin’ (small pot). The actress couldn’t contain her excitement over the exquisite taste and presentation.
Reflecting on the souvenirs she received, Mercy Aigbe praised their exceptional quality. She recalled one party where she was pleasantly surprised to be given a loaf of bread as a souvenir, highlighting the unique and creative nature of Yoruba party favors.
With genuine admiration, Mercy Aigbe concluded that Yoruba parties are unrivaled in their ability to provide an unforgettable experience, emphasizing that there seems to be no limit to the variety of souvenirs they offer.
“Yorubas throw the best parties! No cap. What! Hot Amala, inside Ikoko Irin… With fresh fish and ‘inside meat’, ‘orisirisi’ with ‘Ogufe’ (goat meat). The souvenirs nko? The other day fresh hit sweet bred was shared as souvenir at a party! Nothing they cannot share as souvenirs”.
