TV show aims to end jollof rice debate

The debate over which West African country makes the best jollof rice can get heated.

Nigeria’s Premium Times says that the country’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, recently “sparked outrage” by claiming Senegal prepared better jollof rice than Nigeria.

Many Ghanaians and Sierra Leoneans also claim the mantle.

So now a TV channel has decided to settle it once and for all.

Bella Naija reports that the channel BTV has announced the African Jollof Rice Challenge and is going to give $5,000 (£3,900) to the person they judge the best jollof rice chef at the end of August.
