My Jollof Rice Convo with a Nigerian Kid

What will jollof rice not cause in this country? Even children as little as four years know of the power of jollof rice.

I wasn’t expecting a hard laugh when I went to the provision store to get soft drinks where I jammed into this sharp mouthed kid. Below is how the conversation played out.

Me: How are you?

Kid: Fine (He goes blabbing, you don’t want to know about)

Me: What is Your name?

Kid: (replies then goes to the store protector and flexes his muscles attempting to climb it)

Me: What are you doing?

Kid: I want to climb it like superman.

Me: Hmmm, so you like superman?

Kid: Yes, superman can fly and go to different places. I want to be like him.

Me: Wow, that is nice, so if you have superman power, where will you go?

Kid: I will fly to America

Me: Interesting, and when you get to America what will you do there?

Kid: I will go and eat Jollof rice (smiles)

Me: Chinekeme! (laughs till tears trickled down my cheek)

Please America, do you have a special jollof rice than our Naija own, I want to become superwoman ooo.

One word for this Kid.
