Jollof Cook-Off

Which country has the best Jollof? Is it Ghana? Nigeria? Senegal? Sierra Leone? Gambia? Liberia? etc. The jollof rivalry between these West African countries is no secret and if you have a West African friend chances are you have had a jollof treat dished up with a hefty serving of smack talk. But is this never-ending culinary fistcuff over taste or is it shear display of patroitism and national pride? Lets determine once again, which country has the best Jollof at the DC Afrobeats Block Party . You can participate and find out for yourself.

Get your tickets now. Its going down outdoors in the large patio of Karma DC on Saturday September 25th featuring an incredible lineup of star DJs.
