Jollof was very disappointed that despite how expensive staying at the hotel was, they could still not provide guests with free nose masks and they were in the hospitality business.
See a video of the comedian’s rant below:
In a subsequent post, Jollof revealed that the hotel had reached out to him to apologise but he was not satisfied with it.
In the apology, the hotel claimed that nose masks were free and begged him not to be angry. Jollof however explained that they should have offered him free stay at their organization instead.
Nigerians react to Jollof’s call out
The comedian had carried fans along as he called out Eko Hotel and also updated them on their apology. A number of them reacted to the funny man’s posts.
Read what some of them had to say below:
"That’s just messed up. It happened to me last year and they sold a mask to me but I think I paid 200/250 or so. Which is even crazy cos with the amount of money we pay for the rooms which doesn’t even include anything spectacular - a face mask should even be free."
"I'm a hospitality business consultant and I can tell you for free that you are right. Nose mask is the least they can do to encourage their customers and avoid any harassment. Such a big brand. What a shame!"
"Normally nose mask there is suppose to be free... imagine paying hotel of 128k and still buying nose mask for 750 naria...that’s madness o."
"I like this ehh!!! Tell them o!! Bad service’s everywhere like they’re doing you are favour ."
Masquerade opens mask as Mr Jollof gifts him cash

In Africa, many things are considered sacred including masquerades. However, a certain young masquerade seemed to throw caution to the wind after meeting with popular comedian, Mr Jollof.
The funny man who appeared to be at an event and having a good time was seen with a young masquerade and asking him if he wanted money.
As expected, the ‘spirit creature’ responded in the affirmative and the celebrity reached out to the person carrying his wads of cash beside him to get something for the young boy.
Eventually, Jollof asked the masquerade to remove his mask and he willingly did without appearing to give it much thought.
