Adetunji Omotola and Maleshane Makhale, founders of African Solutions Express are hosting the first ever Jollof Rice competition in South Africa on Youth Day (June 16, 2021) under the banner of Politics, Economics, Wine & Food (PEWF)
We suspect that many Africans are probably aware of the jollof-rice ‘wars’, especially between Ghana & Nigeria as to who cooks the best jollof rice.
Ironically neither of these two powerful African rivals can claim to be the original source of jollof-rice which originally comes from Senegal.
The variant from Senegal is known as Thieboudienne. The Gambian variant is called Benachin. Gambia and Senegal used to be one country, Sengeambia
We have secured a delightful Congolese restaurant called Karibu Wote in Sandton for this occasion on the 16th June, coinciding with our National Holiday – Youth Day in the endeavour to elevate dialogue
It will host a wine tasting & exhibitors (such as Sena wines who add a delectable & sophisticated touch to de-alcoholised alternative) – mechanism to ventilate the Africa Free Trade Agreement in a manner that is both lucid & meaningful.
Themed around African food, wine & trade
