The winner of the African Jollof Rice Challenge will go home with a $5000 prize, the organisers have announced.
According to the executive Producer of Brand Television Network, (Btv), Felix King, the argument on which country has the best Jollof rice informed the contest.
This debate sprang up from a statement by Lai Muhammed, Nigeria’s Minister of Information who said, “Senegalese Jollof Rice is the best and a counter claim by Acting President Yemi Osibajo that, “We all know that Nigerian Jollof Rice is the best anywhere. We beat the Ghanaians and Senegalese hands down.”
King said: “There is no official position yet on which country has the best Jollof rice in Africa, hence,theBtv’s desire to unravel the mystery through this contest.
