BBC Africa News has recently shared a short video that featured Ghanaian triple Jumper for Tokyo 2020, Nadia Eke.
In the video sighted on a Twitter page with the handle @Ghanaspotlight, Nadia stated that she asked her father who is a Nigerian the timeless question about which Jollof is the best, Ghanaian or Nigerian?
According to Nadia, her father responded by saying;
"I am Nigerian but i ended up marrying a Ghanaian so..."
Based on the response her father gave and how Nadia Eke affirmed what he said, it will be fair to say that Nadia and her father appear to be fans of Ghana Jollof.
The question about the best Jollof when it comes to Ghana and Nigeria has been one that has been debated upon for years.
Each party believes they have the best-tasting Jollof.
Although the process of preparation may not necessarily be the same, the basic ingredients which are rice, tomatoes, onions, oil, pepper, meat/fish are the same for both countries.
A few of the people who saw the post had this to say;
