Jollof rice is everybody’s one and only bae. If you’ve ever had firewood Jollof, you’ll totally relate.

Wahala started off a sudden, when a Nigerian chef, Djoella Kitchen, shared this plate of Jollof rice and chicken on Twitter.

Why should anybody buy this rice for N800 please?

@Djoellakitchen I should now buy that miserable chicken that looks like he just came out of a Fight? And this tin tomato rice for #800

Maybe the tomato paste finished when the Jollof was still on fire.

@Djoellakitchen I know Jollof rice can be a struggle to cook sometimes but nah not this. Did tomato paste finish?

Some Ghanaians even tried to slander Nigerian Jollof.

But this Caribbean Twitter user testified to the greatness of Nigerian Jollof.

Next time, she should just add plenty filter so the rice can look better.

@Djoellakitchen sorry for the insults you received ? but please make the food lol more enticing next time
