Popular British singer, Edward Christopher Sheeran (aka Ed Sheeran) has recently shared his thought about the Ghanaian and Nigerian Jollof rice in a video recently shared on social media by Yemi Alade. In the video, popular Nigerian singer, Yemi Eberechi Alade could be seen arguing with the British singer over which of the two categories of Jollof rice is better.
Yemi Alade is currently in London for a music concert that is aimed at pushing her music career forward, and one of the people she has met over there is Ed Sheeran.
Why Ed Sheeran preferred Ghanaian Jollof to Nigerian Jollof.
Ed Sheeran visited Ghana back in 2016. He was in Ghana mainly for music reasons. He went to record some songs with Fuse ODG, a Ghanaian-English afrobeat artiste who is popularly known for his Azonto song that became a hit song across Africa some years ago.
While in Ghana, Ed Sheeran tried out so many things, such as going out to drink with the guys, eating all sorts of food, especially the Ghanaian Jollof rice. According to what the British artiste revealed to BuzzFeed, it was quite an experience for him in Ghana.
Ed Sheeran, however, has not set foot in Nigeria, perhaps he may do that later, and this has not granted him the opportunity to eat the Nigerian Jollof rice. The reason Ed Sheeran preferred Ghanaian Jollof rice to the Nigerian Jollof is because he has only eaten Ghanaian Jollof rice.
Is he right to prefer Ghanaian Jollof rice to Nigerian Jollof rice?
The answer to this question will be in two forms.
The first one is that Ed Sheeran is right to prefer the food he has eaten before to the one he has not eaten. As the popular saying goes, a known devil is better than an unknown angel. He could only praise the food he has eaten before, not the one he has not eaten.
The second answer is that Ed Sheeran has not eaten Nigerian Jollof rice before and that should not make him discard the Nigerian rice so quick. He may end up liking the Nigerian rice better when he finally eats it.
