Controversial Nigerian online activist, Vincent Martins Otse aka VeryDarkMan (VDM) recently reacted to the Nigeria and Ghana jollof wars.
The public figure who took a trip to the neighbouring West African country decided to finally have a taste of Ghana jollof that had been causing a lot of social media debate.
VDM began by informing his admirers that he was spending $450 a night at one of Ghana’s most opulent hotels and that he wasn’t even paying for it since a fan was funding it. The socialite said that the admirer who made the reservation was from Nigeria.
The following is a video of the darkman’s hotel room:In a different video, VDM took a seat and offered him a dish of Ghanaian jollof. He then proceeded to sample the food.
The activist’s hopeful countenance gave way to one of perplexity. He pondered whether he might not have properly mixed the dish.
Then, VDM came to the conclusion that he would need to ask Hilda Baci, a Nigerian who has a Guinness World Record, to take Ghanaians on a class on how to make proper jollof.
According to him, their own version had no taste. He said:
“It’s not like I’m trying to hype my country but to be very honest, if this is the rice you people are using to compare Nigerian jollof, then my brother, Ghanaians you people need to actually go to Nigerian school. I think I will contact Hilda Baci, let’s see if she will come and do a school for you guys. Where’s the spice? Abeg Nigerian jollof is better.”The video of VeryDarkMan rating the taste of Ghana jollof was met with funny reactions from netizens. Read some of them below:
