Nigerian jollof vs Ghanaian jollof: Ed Sheeran chooses his favourite

Published

on

England-born music maestro, Ed Sheeran, was one of the nobles at The Earth Shot Prize award show which held at London over the weekend but one thing seems to be catching Nigerians interest. That is a video posted by Yemi Alade on her Instagram page wherein the “Shape of You” singer said which he preferred in the unending debate between Nigerian jollof and Ghanian jollof rice.

Both meals although are made from the same source product—rice—contain varying ingredients which gives it its distinctive aroma, taste and flavour, resulting in years of unending debate (both online and offline) on which is the superior one. Of course, you would expect the Nigerians to favour theirs and vice-versa. On this topic, Ed Sheeran looked captivated when chatting with the self-acclaimed Mama Africa, Yemi Alade. He spoke of when he visited Ghana and had to taste their very much prestige jollof, also on how much he noticed people arguing over which geographical zone jollof rice was better.

“So when we were in Ghana . . . we were living with a bunch of Nigerian as well . . . I saw a lot of arguments on which jollof was better” Ed Sheeran says, intriguing Yemi Alade’s interest in the discussion. “I think I prefer Ghanaian jollof”, he coninues much to the displeasure of Yemi as shown by her stomping her foot on the ground, sighingly she utters the word “No” in a stressed manner. Ed Sheeran in a bid to cool the tension eventually revealed his preference is that way only because he has not visited Nigeria before.
