Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has shocked Nigerians all over after he crowned Senegalese Jollof rice the best.

In an interview with CNN’s Richard Quest, Mohammed had been asked, “Which country makes the best jollof?”

Laughing first as he began his act of treason, he responded saying, “I want to say probably… Senegal.”

Even Mr. Quest was shocked at the response. “I hear a shock around the country,” he said.

Well, Mr. Lai Mohammed, you’re Lai-ing. Nigerian Jollof is the best.

And of course, Nigerian Twitter took it very personal.

In the midst of all the brouhaha though, the real king stands tall.
