The never-ending argument, a battle of two passionate cultures or a matter of taste and preferences; call it whatever but the age-old debate between Ghanaians and Nigerians about their respective Jollof seems to have been confirmed by Nigerians on Twitter.
Although there is no tool to measure the quality or otherwise of each, we can conclude this long-fought battle for supremacy by what fellow Nigerian who has tasted the Ghanaian delicacy has said.
In a tweet by Africa Fun Zone, it tweeted that “Ghana is known to make the best jollof in the world!” and this arose the long-standing beef between folks from both sides.

Whiles Ghanaians rooted for their country, most Nigerians on the platform confirmed that indeed Ghana is first in Jollof making when it comes to comparing us and Nigeria.
“I’m a 43-year-old Nigerian. Lived in Lagos all my life, only moved to Accra last year. I can testify that this is true! Omo, we no reach,” one NIgeruan tweeted.

I have lived most of my life in Nigeria for 35 years. I argued a lot about this until I relocated recently to Accra and realised Ghana's jollof tastes better.
