  • When he was told it was Ghanaian jollof, Burna was surprised and told Complex Ghanaian jollof tasted and looked way better than what they had served him

Nigerian afrobeats sensation, Burna Boy, recently took part in a food-tasting challenge during an interview with Complex. The challenge involved tasting and identifying different varieties of jollof rice from various African countries. Jollof rice, a well-known West African dish, often sparks debates about which nation prepares it the best.

Upon learning that the particular dish was Ghanaian, Burna Boy's surprise was obvious as he had a puzzled look on his face. He boldly told Complex that the taste and appearance of Ghanaian jollof were off and tasted nothing like the Ghanaian jollof he knows. He remarked that the jollof he was served on the show appeared paler in comparison to the rich and reddish look typical of authentic Ghanaian jollof.

In the video's comment section, Ghanaians shared their opinions on the turn of events. Some folks suggested that Complex might have been attempting to undermine Ghana's reputation in the ongoing jollof rivalry by serving a subpar version of the Ghanaian dish.
