    American singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, philanthropist and actor, Aliaune Damala Badara Akon popularly known as Akon battled it out with Lagos state deputy governor, Obafemi Hamzat in Lagos about Jollof rice.

    The Senegalese-born singer at the Google For Nigeria event got into a debate with the deputy governor of Lagos about who has the best jollof rice in Africa.

    Akon defending his country of birth said: “Senegal invented jollof rice.” But Hamzat who is not ready to debate on who invented the popular meal took another angle by asking who cooks it best.

    He said: “I’m not talking about the history of jollof rice, I am saying Nigeria jollof is the best.” And the audience went wild with applause for the deputy governor who went further to add that: “I agree with you on the history. As you know,we all wants to be better off than our parents, we want to be better than our teachers so the Nigerian rice is the better.”
