A white woman who is also an anthropologist and assistant professor, Joeva Rock, has gone on Twitter to share a photo of the "jollof rice" she was served on a plane.
Joeva said she was given the food a few weeks ago when she was on a flight to Ghana. The food looks like mashed potatoes, sauce, and vegetable soup.

"Kenya Airways has the worst food. They served me 'rice with curried lamb sauce' from JKIA to Monrovia and I spent the whole flight looking for the 'lamb' because the only thing I saw were bones. I presumed the lamb must have trekked from Marraketch to Nairobi and lost its flesh."

"I don't need to taste it to know that this is something else labeled jollof rice."

"Neither Nigerians, Ghanaians nor the Senegalese can recognize that insult to our ancestors."
"This confused me too much, do you know how long I was looking for the rice."
White pastor tasted sweet jollof rice
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a short video of a white pastor narrating his experience of visiting Nigeria and eating the country's jollof rice went viral.
The man told church members that people need to visit Nigeria and taste the meal. He said he does not want to leave for America anymore.
As he used flowery words to describe the meal on the altar, the church members screamed loudly as if he was preaching.
