It’s a culture clash, told through the lens of a Nigerian chef and her Ghanaian fiancé. Historically, Africans have debated who makes the tasty dish best. The question is... what’s really at stake?
The play starts in familiar settings but things suddenly go left when we realise how deep the tension surrounding food goes. Its surreal yet accurate. Funny but tragic. Sad but true! Come and get your fill at Jollof Wars.Book Now

“Who makes the best jollof? The sense of competition over this African dish is the focal point of the culture clash in a story in which Nigeria meets Ghana.”
