Guinea ? etc. The jollof rivalry between these West African countries is no secret.If you have a West African friend, chances are you have had a jollof dish presented with a hefty serving of trash talk. But is this never-ending culinary war really over taste, or is it sheer display of patriotism and national pride? Let’s determine once again, which country has the best at the DC Afrobeats Block Party and Jolloff cook-off. You can participate and find out for yourself

Get your tickets now. It’s all going down outdoors at the large patio of Karma DC on Saturday, September 25th featuring an incredible lineup of performers.
