‘Doodle’ celebrates Jollof rice

Google celebrates West African dish jollof rice, with a Google Doodle.

The celebration of jollof rice, a dish local to countries in West Africa, was to appreciate farmers who plant and reap rice so that the meal can be prepared.

For the doodle, Nigerian content creator and visual artist, Haneefah Adam, created a stop-motion animation video showing the preparation of Jollof rice.

The video which has a background music by a Senegalese jazz artist, Hervé Samb, showed a step by step process of how to make the dish as well as the ingredients used in making it.
