Yemi Alade and Ed Sheeran may be cooking something as the two had a blast talking at the London 2021 Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony. But one thing for sure is they definitely aren’t cooking up Nigerian Jollof.
Jollof is a West African delicacy rumored to have begun in Senegal/Gambia by the Wollof tribe of which is only evident by the rhyme between the name and the tribe. However, despite its origins, it has long been a social battle between Ghanaians and Nigerians of who make the best Jollof meals.
In all honesty, one would think this was a concern of the past, but no it’s not, thanks to Yemi Alade who brought up the question to Ed Sheeran whilst he was next to her on the red carpet of London 2021 Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony.
It is fairly hard to make out the conversation. But halfway through the video, Yemi interrupts Ed Sheeran whilst he was talking about where he stays when he is in Ghana and says “You were going to says something”. The crowd noise overshadows his words but it follows with “There is no argument there”. He finishes it off by saying “I think I prefer Ghanaian Jollof”, leaving the very well-dressed singer with an embarrassed frown on her face. Watch below.

UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
