Wise Lagos man opens ‘mama put’ in London, Oyinbos lineup to buy Nigerian Jollof

A Nigerian man called Azeez has taken sweet Nigerian jollof rice to the streets of London, putting the rare taste on the lips of many Oyinbo people.

In a photo shared on Twitter by @IamOlajideAwe, some Oyinbo people could be seen as they lined up to buy food from the restaurant.


We were two when we started


In a short chat with Legit.ng reporter, Azeez said he started the restaurant with one other person, but that he now runs it alone.


Azeez said:

“I’m from Lagos, Surulere. We live in London so we decided to bring food to the city. We were two when we started but now, I’m running myself.”

When @IamOlajideAwe shared the tweet, it generated interest from Nigerians who commended the hustling spirit of the man.
