Taiwo Oluboyede, chief executive officer of IAMBRANDNIGERIA, says his organisation is set to break the Guinness world record by feeding 10,000 street children with jollof rice in Lagos state.
Speaking on the project, Oluboyede said the show will take place on April 13, 2020.
He said the project will involve 60 top chefs who will cook six tonnes of rice in one massive pot.
“We are setting Guinness World Record for the largest serve of Jollof rice in Nigeria next year,” Oluboyede said.
“Jollof is becoming the most engaging topic in both Anglo/Francophone African countries, just like football. Food brings people together.
“On 13th April 2020, which is a public holiday, 60 top chef will be cooking 6 Tonnes of rice in a single pot and we are feeding 10,000 children in Lagos, many of them on the street.
“This has been described as a one of the largest humanitarian endeavours in our country, where that number of people are touched in a single day.
“It is a combination of Jollof and the best of Nigerian music in one place.
“The 4.5 diameter pot, one of the largest in the world will be displayed on the street before donation to the museum where people can see and get inspired. One of the exciting things about this project is that the pot is made here in Nigeria.”
