Nigeria’s Vice President Yem Osinbajo today weighed in on the forever lingering battle of which Jollof Rice in the continent is the best.
Osinbajo who spoke today at the Platform Nigeria, a church based programme in Lagos today, disclosed that Nigerians make the best Jollof rice and that we beat Ghana and Senegal to it hands down. He also talked about Dino Melaye’s hit track, Ajeku Iyani.
Here’s what he said;
“Nobody is as funny as Nigerians and Nigerian comedians whether professionals or amateurs. We even have a member of the National Assembly who recently launched a CD, Ajeku Iyani oje, who has heard of Aye ku Iyani oje. and we are the most innovative entrepreneurs. Recently someone showed me a text sent by a young man to invite him to a book launch with the title, Seven Steps to becoming a professional Whistle Blower.
