Will you Give Up Jollof Rice and Plantain Forever for N5 Million?



So, this is trending on our Instagram page and we decided to share.

Will you leave Jollof Rice and Plantain for life to get N5 million instantly?

Here are some of the responses from some BN Team members:

  • For N5 million? No way! I can leave Jollof Rice but not plantain. What will I spend the money on?
  • The money is too small. I can’t.
  • I’m so taking it. I can even delete the Jollof Rice and Plantain I’ve eaten before.
  • Yes, I’ll take the money.
  • For what? I’m not taking it.
  • I’ll take the money and hide to eat Jollof Rice and Plantain. That money will do a lot in my life.
  • Yes, I’ll take the money. If it were Yam or Amala I’d reject the money.

BellaNaijarians, what will you do?

      Out of curiosity why do some people call it Jellof rice ? Is that the name in some parts of Nigeria?

    • Akara Pancake

      June 5, 2017 at 7:44 pm

      Jellof is the native Igbo version, also known as mass production. Made with dry fish, crayfish and palm-oil, No tinned tomato or derica or fancy parsley leaves used. No sir. If the rice is not overcooked or does not stick together, then you got the recipe wrong.

      Growing up Igbo, Jellof scarred my childhood

    Keep your 5Mil. Jollof rice is my Friday night dish for life and this is how it is in my parent’s home for more than 30 years. Jollof and plantain together no thanks. Jollof is a stand alone dish for me, My plantain must be served with stew.

    Whoever typed this has not tasted the meanest of jollof rice, if you have, you would not have typed this – If the rich in our midst can still eat jollof rice with all their wealth, then you should know, that not eating jollof rice is a sin!

    I wish the offer is for real, I would’ve cashed in on it since. I’ve not tasted real jellof rice for more than 3yrs. I’ ve not smelled fried plantain for like forever for health reasons. I’m on alkaline diet.

    The day you will try Jollof Rice + fried plantain + Moi-moi + pomo + coleslaw + a bit of pepper stew + fried beef. And then add coke… You might forget N10M and even the other room for some time….

    • Atoke

      June 11, 2017 at 5:36 am

      Lol I wasn’t even part of this poll.

      Hehehe but thanks for remembering that as an Ogbomosho girl, I’d ordinarily rep Amala. However, Location + Fitfam… 🙁
