Popular singer and ‘Lock Up’ crooner, Akon, who is currently in Nigeria arrived the popular Idumota market in Lagos.
In a viral video obtained by Naija News, Akon was received by a crowd who celebrated and hyped the singer upon setting eyes on the multi-award winning singer.
The singer looked good in his African attire as the traders and some passersby fought to touch the singer as he made his way around.
The Senegalese-born singer was said to have visited Idumota after the Google event where he got into a debate with the deputy governor of Lagos about who has the best jollof rice in Africa.
Akon, defending his country of birth said: “Senegal invented jollof rice.” But Hamzat who is not ready to debate on who invented the popular meal took another angle by asking who cooks it best.
He said: “I’m not talking about the history of jollof rice, I am saying Nigerian Jollof is the best.” And the audience went wild with applause for the deputy governor who went further to add that: “I agree with you on the history. As you know, we all want to be better off than our parents, we want to be better than our teachers so the Nigerian rice is the better.”
