Nigeria Jollof declared champion in first ever Washington DC Jollof Festival

Nigeria Jollof beat Cameroon jollof, Ghana jollof, and Sierra Leone jollof on July 2, 2017 in the United States, to become the winner of the first ever Jollof Hackathon.

Ms. Atinuke Ogunsalu of Queensway Restaurant & Catering in Maryland, US, secured the win for Nigeria with her meal.

The winner walked away with US$1000 coworking services from event partner I/O Spaces and an opportunity to become a Chef at Jollof Caviar; an upscale African Fusion Restaurant Opening in Washington DC in 2019.

Newly crowned #JollofFestival champion Ms. Ogunsalu told TheAfricanDream.net that she was glad to have carried the day for Nigeria, and felt that people can now actually jump off the fence and try Nigerian Jollof for themselves instead of being prejudiced.
