Ed Sheeran wishes to visit Nigeria to taste our delicious jollof rice

Multi-talented British singer Ed Sheeran has joined the list of international superstars who wants to visit Nigeria to taste our delicious jollof rice.

Recently, the Grammy award-winning entertainer and Guitarist made known his plan to visit Nigeria.

The “Shape of You” hit maker admitted to the Sun that he has to get back to Africa after the final show of his World Divide tour in Ipswich on 26 August.

Sheeran seems to have clung to Africa’s socio-cultural norms after visiting Ghana some years back..

“I’ve got to get back to Africa. After the tour I want to go and chill out there. I was in Ghana a few years back and I loved it. Now I need to go to Nigeria. I heard the jollof rice is really good there,” the ‘Shape of You’ crooner told The Sun.

Among other renowned celebrated icons, CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, had made similar comments after his professional visit to Lagos in 2017.

He had revealed his associates dissuaded him on the idea of indulging excessively in local cuisines but he defiantly ordered Jollof rice, pounded yam, and snail soup — the first being his favorite pick.

“It was delicious, I loved it. I was told not to compare the jollof rice with that of neigbouring countries, so we’ll stop there,” Zuckerberg was quoted to have said.

In 2018, Denys Gauer, ambassador of France to Nigeria, had said “jollof rice was his favourite Nigerian dish.“
