Nigerian jollof emerges winner in first ever Washington DC Jollof Festival (VIDEO)


Nigerian jollof rice has been declared world’s best in first ever Washington DC Jollof Festival.

On July 2, 2017, Ms. Atinuke Ogunsalu of Queensway Restaurant & Catering became the winner of the first ever Jollof Festival in the USA organized by Afropolitan Insights.

Ms. Ogunsalu put skeptics to shame with her win and proved to all that Nigerians can indeed cook Jollof when she secured her country the win at the event. 

Her competitors at the event were Cameroon, Ghana, and Sierra Leone.

The winner walked away with a $1000 US dollar coworking services from event partner I/O Spaces and an opportunity to become a Chef at Jollof Caviar; an upscale African Fusion Restaurant Opening in Washington DC in 2019.

Ishmael Osekre, the Ghanaian-born, New York-based founder of Afropolitan Insights, creators of the festival in an interview with TheAfricanDream.net said he was very touched by the attendance and welcoming spirit received from participants, vendors, and the city of Washington DC, adding “thanks to all your efforts we have set a great tone for #JollofFestival and we only look forward to building on it as we popularize the togetherness the meal brings here in the United States.”

This raw video was shot at the event by Oral Ofori, Founder of #TheAfricanDreamLLC who were media partners for the event.
