For some reason the infamous Jollof rice debate became a “threesome”, no thanks to Minister Lai, but even him cannot deny that Nigerian cuisines – trying not to say food – are a delicacy.
If he’s not acknowledging that and still insists on Senegal, then the IBF, WBA and IBO World Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua should take his job because he rates Nigerian food real high.
Born in Watford, but still connected to his Nigerian roots, Joshua, at the weekend put Africa and Nigeria on the map (not talking his tats) again after dishing an 11th round TKO to Wladimir Klitschko in Wembley.
Prior fight night, Joshua weighed 10 lbs more than his challenger, but in is words ‘Pounded yam is a Nigerian food I eat…it keeps me strong’.
On a lighter mood, ( He didn’t say British or Senegalese food was better) he quipped that the “Iyan” may have contributed to his added pounds.
