Which kind of food would you  prefer this yuletide?

My taste and love for food changes as the day goes by. I grew up  eating rice to a fault but now I prefer African food especially amala and gbegiri soup with ewedu.

Why amala and gbegiri?

As someone who hails from Obafemi Owode local government in Ogun state, I know that amala is one of our delicacies but the gbegiri is just something I developed overtime .

Can you prepare this delicacy?

Yes, I can. Right from my tender age, my mummy taught us how to cook and every one in my family loves my cooking especially my mother and I still cook on a daily basis.

Did you play any prank to get a particular type of food while growing up?
No, I didn’t. My mum allows us to eat whatever we wanted. So, there was no reason to have played any pranks.

Do you exercise?

I seldom exercise but I jog and skip whenever I feel like.
Your advice to Nigerians this season

Nigerians should eat balanced diet and should stay away from excessive spending that may result into debts.
