  27. No Ofeakwu is better than my Granny's own. With plenty dry fish, fresh fish and goat meat. My Grandma is BAE, she used to write me letters and send me money when i was in secondary school. Now when she calls me to buy her anything i don't look back even though i know she still has more money than me. It just feels good to give back.

  47. I am really not a food person, but loves snacks a lot. My grandma improvised by making me local snacks like cassava cake (akara jiakpu), usu (made with egusi) and fried breadfruit. Whenever she hears that anyone was traveling to the north, she must package these delicacies for me. I am her favourite grandchild, her death/burial was a celebration of life, but I cried cos I would really miss her. RIP Mma Nko.

  71. Hnmmm, my grandma food seems irresistible, the number one reason I go on a visit to her place is to eat her fufu with soup(usually called omi obe in yoruba ) accompanied with fresh fish and even meat sometimes, and she balance it with ewedu that has been well garnished with iru... Hnmmm, this food is so delicious that wherever I find myself, I always crave for my granny's fufu cos no other fufu and soup taste like granny's... Olohun je ki isu omo o Jina fun iya alakara ooo(that's what we call her ooooooo)
