Step Aside Jollof Rice, Meet The Real Difference Between Nigerians & Ghanaians

image

According to Ayo Shonaiya, The difference between Ghana and Nigeria is not only in the jollof rice, it is this boy, Abraham Attah!

Ayo went on to say “Discovered in Ghana while playing in the street (not hawking as many media outlets reported), & cast in the film Beasts of No Nation. In a year he has been groomed, developed, coached and he just won Best Male Actor at the Independent Spirit Awards.

He also presented an Award at the Oscars last night, and already filming his 2nd film. He did not start getting media attention until we all saw his WORK. He was not used as a social experiment and he is not a subconscious charity case you can donate to just to leverage on his media value.”

Kudos to the young man, but Nigerian Jollof is still the best:)
