We all know that Nigeria has the best jollof rice. But we now need to prove if this is actually true. So, if you are confident of your Jollof Rice cooking game, enter the African Jollof Rice Challenge for an opportunity to win $5000.
The Challenge is organised by Brand Television Network (Btv). The Executive Producer of Brand Television Network, (Btv), Felix King, brought this up based on the argument about which country has the best Jollof Rice resulted in the contest.
King said: “There is no official position yet on which country has the best Jollof rice in Africa, hence, the Btv’s desire to unravel the mystery through this contest.
‘’None of the perspectives has proved convincing, despite Nigeria’s strong claims to the African cuisine. The different viewpoints on the streets have only generated more controversies and continuous placement of different points to back up individual claims.’’
Ororo Pattaya Otono, an Executive Producer with Btv commenting about the challenge said it would kick off with an online recipe contest, where the best contestants would be selected for the live screening and then the grand finale. He said the programme would end at the Reward Night that would coincide with the World Jollof Rice Day on August 22.
Perhaps, this will put to rest the fierce debate about which country prepares the most delicious, delightful and tastiest Jollof Rice.
