The inventor, Samuel Yakubu, said he started working on the device in 2003 when he made use of kerosene, unripe fruits and rechargeable batteries.

He noted that his aim was to help families to afford it irrespective of social status.

“My target when I started was about light. I wanted to ensure that anybody could afford to run it, access it, irrespective of their social status or location. Not everyone can afford to run generators or install solar systems in their homes, but with this, people won’t have to worry about darkness.”

Yakubu said he later sent the prototype of the product to China, where it was modified and now it is being marketed.

“In 2011, I sent a prototype to China for production through someone I met via Ali Express. I shared the raw materials with them and they began production, but I could not reach them until 2023. In 2023, I was eventually able to travel to China; we reached an agreement and I returned to Nigeria with some of the products.”

The lamp is very easy to use. One pours water and salt into the lantern bag, and the light comes.
