Knorr Jollof Fest Celebrates Nigerian Food Culture this July.

Some would say the home of the incredibly delicious and spicy dish Africans have come to love so much — Jollof — is Senegal. While many will debunk this statement, did we say debunk? No. Many will fight (sounds better) this statement, claiming their home country as the place which birthed, nursed and spread the gospel of Jollof.

Nigerians and Ghanaians, for instance, have been in a Jollof war for years. Just in case you have no idea how intense the war was, you could not ever say to Nigerian ears something along the lines of ‘Ghana jollof is the best’, because trust us, even if that individual has never tasted Ghanaian jollof in their life, you were definitely for it. Thankfully, the first Knorr Jollof fest put an end to the Jollof war, saying “Every plate of jollof counts as long as it is made with Knorr, you can experience the goodness of this great meal in different ways”.

Whether Jollof originated from Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana or even the moon, what can most assuredly be said is that Jollof has become an internationally acclaimed dish that has come to an eternal rest among the local dishes of Nigerians. We simply love Jollof!
