Jon Benjamin Has Taken A Side In The Ongoing Jollof Wars


Just in case you are by chance new to the internet, there is an ongoing debate about which West African country has the best jollof. Although there is an unfortunate inclusion of countries like Senegal, the main debate is between Ghana and Nigeria.

If you think this is a trivial matter think again. The BBC has covered it, President Mahama has been asked about it on international trips, it is a sensation.

The latest public figure to add his voice to the debate is British High Commissioner to Ghana Mr. Jon Benjamin. The outspoken Diplomat stated categorically in a tweet that he likes to tell his Nigerian friends how tastier Ghana Jollof is than Nigerian jollof.

He made this statement in response to a twitter user asking him what his favourite GHanaian dish was.
