4 Nigerian Soups That Are Just Really Terrible

May 11, 2020

We recently made a quiz about identifying Nigerian soups and while taking it, I had an epiphany. Even though a lot of Nigerian soups are great, there are some that are just terrible. Like, these are the soups that you taste and immediately know that Beelzebub was feeling particularly evil the day he made their recipes.

Soups like:

Humans are going to hate this so much.”

1) Gbegiri Soup

Gbegiri Soup Recipe - Sisi Jemimah

Is this soup or custard? No one can tell. The best you can do is hope that you’re not mistakenly served Hollandia banana-flavoured custard with your amala. Also, I found out recently that the reason it looks like baby poop is because it’s made with overcooked beans.

2) Ewedu Soup

Origin of Nigerian Foods: Ewedu Soup • Connect Nigeria

Look at this. Look at this and tell me it doesn’t look like gutter water. TELL ME THAT WHAT IS IN THAT PLATE ISN’T ALGAE!

3) Afang Soup

Afang is on this list for the crime of containing periwinkles. Food shouldn’t be light blue. It’s unnatural. Then there are the psychopaths that add periwinkles but leave them in their hard as hell shells, ensuring that anyone who eats the soup has the absolute worst time having to suck them out of the shells (if they don’t chip their teeth mistakenly biting down on them first).

4) Miyan Kuka Soup

What soup is this?

Looks like saw dust in water. Can not deal.
