‘Skin Tight’ singer Mr Eazi has said he prefers Gambian jollof rice over those made in Nigeria and Ghana.
The singer whose music is a fusion of Ghanaian and Nigerian sounds made this known during a chat with Channel 4 News in London.
When asked for his most-loved jollof rice, Mr Eazi, who’s fast becoming controversial among Nigerians on social media, said: “I think I’ll give it to Gambia, Gambia Jollof.”
Earlier during the chat, the ‘Leg Over’ singer was asked about his take on the widespread inequality in northern Nigeria, and he responded by saying inequality is not limited to the region, insisting that it is a global issue.
He had said: “A lot of times, I always say what’s on my mind. There’s inequality everywhere, not just in northern Nigeria, even in western in Nigeria, there’s inequality.
“There’s inequality in London, there’s inequality everywhere in the world. When things get to me, I’m vocal about it.
“You might not see me on the streets leading a campaign. I don’t know if it will ever get to that stage. I don’t know if I will feel something strongly enough to be on the street but I use my tools and my tools are social media, my music, my videos.”

The singer, who also disclosed that his music was partly influenced by the stories his grandfather used to tell him as a child, recently earned a lot of flak for claiming to have pioneered the infusion of Ghanaian slangs into Nigerian music.
