Oba Bolarinwa who met K-Rad along the Oke-Ila and Ila-Orangun road on his way back to Osogbo after the flag-off ceremony, told K-Rad, “As you have remembered and bless us with your resources and time, my God will bless your aspiration.”

K-Rad had promised Oba Bolarinwa that he will rehabilitate the 15 kilometer access road to the waterfall when he visited the town early 2017, as part of his statewide political consultation.
The hilly town of Oke Ila is located in the Savanna rain forest in Ifedayo Local government area of Osun state, the small town apart from being endowed with good climate; is also endowed with fertile land that is good for agricultural practices, especially planting of both arable and cash crops. Its residents are mostly farmers.

K-Rad told the Oba that tourist attraction sites development ranks high in his “Assured Future…Ojo Ola To Daju”....Four Point Agenda blueprint for the revamping of Osun economy. “Kabiyesi, with your rich arable land that support tobacco and banana plantations, no development-oriented governor will neglect your kingdom. You can count on me as a good son of the town. “

About 15 kilometers away from the center of the town is a natural waterfall called Ayikunungba, about seventy feet from the base level, the source of the fall is at the top of the rock which cascades and spreads round the area. Also at the base by the right side, is a cafe which has about seven room that can accommodate three people each.

Before one can get to the base of the fall, a visitor need to ascend about 260 staircase and do the same while climbing up, the staircase was erected by the community to make the movement up and down a little easier. Despite the stairs, however only determined minds could climb and ascend without much stress.

Ayikunungba is a site to behold, its type is rare in this part of the world, and it is a hidden wealth that is still waiting to be explored. If properly harnessed and maintained, it will not only be a source of wealth to the state and local government, it will also attract foreigners and tourists from all part of the world to Oke-Ila and transform the economy of the town where an erudite scholar and first class monarch, Oba Bolarinwa is reigning as a King.

History has it that Ayikunungba waterfall site was discovered by a group of hunters on expedition long ago and ever since the people have been trying to call the attention of government to it without much success.
