The four pieces of fried plantains selling at 260 Jamaican dollars is GH¢12.65 and not GH¢1,956.33 (USD$260).

Lady Shares Photos Of Strange Looking Jollof She Was Served By British Airways
YEN.com.gh previously reported that Jollof was in the trends in Ghana on May 4 because of a tweet that caused a massive stir on Twitter.
A post shared by a lady is what caused all the ''wahala'' as she shared pictures of a very interesting-looking jollof rice she claimed was served to her on her flight by the British airways.
The inscription on the pack was badly spelled with Jollof being spelled as ‘’Jolof’’. This had many people laughing out loud, with some jokingly saying she was served ''Jollof'' not Jollof, suggesting it was the reason why the food was strange looking.
