On Monday Nigeria former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili has accused Ghanaians of forming the habit of claiming Nigeria’s bests in many exploits.
In a tweet Ezekwesili said she had noticed it with Tiwa Savage and recently with Hilda Bassey.
Recall that Tiwa Savage performed at the historical coronation ceremony of King Charles III.
She became the first Nigerian artiste to receive an invitation to perform at a foreign royal coronation ceremony.
However, some Ghanaians had claimed on the internet that she was from Ghana.
Ezekwesili said she noticed some Ghanaians have started claiming the feat achieved by Bassey, who had broken the Guinness World Record for longest cooking hours.
She wrote, “It was not enough that Ghanaians dared to contest the Best in Jollof Rice trophy with us. I see they have formed the habit of claiming our Bests in other exploits. I saw it with Tiwa Savage and now with Hilda Bassey.
It’s so hilarious. How did this start though? It’s amusing!”
