Let me start by sincerely apologising to my non-Nigerian readers for, you shall not understand what is going on here. I just have to do this!
Huge hugs for you guys though…
Need I state the obvious reason behind my feeling of over-hypness of this thing Nigerians treat like gold??? It is just cow hide!
It has no nutritional value nor any value whatsoever other than to be cooked and chewed and chewed and chewed.
God help you if the cooker of your Ponmo did not cook it well, you wee enterit!
The almighty cassava flakes, saving the souls of Nigerian students since 1666!
I like Gari (PhemieMichael, notice how I have been helping you to ‘capitalize’ the letter G?) but, I don’t think it is almighty… Maybe it is.
I think I actually don’t have a valid argument for my hate.😩
3. Jollof Rice
This one actually really tire me!
What is it sef?!
Did Jollof Rice just come into existence? Or a revelation just dawned on you people !
Enough of the Jollof Rice hype!
Yes, I am vexed!
Rice is rice! It comes in varieties, end of story. If you prefer a variety to the others, good for you.
Don’t come and make one god!
I know they will come for me for even daring to add Dodo to this list of mine but, biko, it is fried plantain and nothing more.
This one, I just do not get.
The way people queue up just to get this thing, you’d be amazed – if you’re not one of them.
NSG recently did a review of this wonders-shall-never-end loaf on her blog and so many of those that commented agreed with her…
Were you people agege-bread deprived ni? Because if you were not, you will know that this is just agege-bread scam!
