If you are a Nigerian, then rice is something you’re not new too. You’re always eating one version of rice or the other. However, what does your favourite type of rice say about the kind of person you are?

1) White rice

You like what you like and no amount of peer pressure can shake you. You’re the original that people make copies of. Out of all your friends, you’re the most responsible one and people tend to trust you. You tend to lead in the situations you find yourself in, and are rarely bossed around. You are also very versatile.

2) Fried rice

You’re probably an only child. You don’t like stress and if any situations shows any sign of stressing you, you remove yourself. It’s an admirable trait, because it’s not easy to prioritise your enjoyment, but it’s stressful to the people that love you because they always have to endure your excesses.

3) Ofada rice

You’re the extra friend and the life of the party. You might be too much for some people, but that’s their business. If your favorite kind of rice is Ofada, you have a lot of personality and are prone to outshining people whenever you step into a room.

4) Coconut rice

You’re the rich and quiet friend in the group and your problems aren’t a lot. You don’t try to please a lot of people and your mantra is “I’m a bad bitch, you can’t kill me”. We respect you.

5) Jollof rice

You’re an extremely popular person and people are always fighting to be your friend. You’re the African Helen of Troy, and nations will go to war over you. A lot of people think you’re overrated and at this point, it doesn’t matter if they’re right or wrong. What matters is that you’re a sought after spec.

6) Native rice

You’re overlooked for your traditional ways, but if something isn’t broken, why fix it? People that love native rice don’t care too much about what other people say. They have a sense of devotion and it’s an admirable trait.

7) Concoction rice

Your haters might call you poor, but we call you resourceful. You know how to make do with what you have for amazing results. You’re the friend constantly bailing people out of tight spots. Life without you will be boring.
