THE MYSTERIES OF DELICIOUS AFRICA SEASON 2 – ORIRI
Edited by Solomon Elusoji
A new 12 episodes documentary series , Oriri, is set to highlight some of the forgotten crops/food culture of Africa, beginning with Nigeria.
Oriri is a word from the Igbo tribe of Nigeria which means ‘to eat’.
The documentary, which is being produced by JubTravel Film, will bring to light the forgotten and less supported African crops/food due to immigration into Africa by westerners.
This season was carried out in partnership with Epe resort and spa, Tripberry.com , Morning side Suites Hotel Lagos and Le chateau hotel Calabar.
It is sad to learn that the hunger and quest to emulate the westerners with the way we dress, the way we speak and the way we look also extends to the food we eat!
This season – Oriri will be going live on the 1st of November 2019, across 3 TV/digital stations in Nigeria and the UK and we would rather share this piece of bread with you.
For the first time we let open our plans to begin the shoot of the next season of the Travel/culinary tourism show at the British council head office, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Present at the event was the Country Director – British Council Lucy Pearson, Stephen Forbes, Director of operations, British council Nigeria and other Members of Parliament and cabinet member of the UK government.
We spoke about our plans to foster Art /travel and Tourism in Africa by collaborating with international bodies, Our journey in travel film making, where we plan to take Africa with our travel films and our plan on strengthening our partnership with DSTV Channel 189, where the current season of the show is been aired.
The Mysteries of delicious Africa season 2 will be exploring 5 cities in Nigeria with a focus on home grown Nigerian Spices, this we intend taking ultimately across Africa.
We also discussed our plans to actualize this project and the exact date of its release which is October, 2019.
If we are what we eat, how best would you describe a typical Lagos person?
Lagos, the capital of Nigeria since its amalgamation in 1914, went on to become the capital of Lagos State after its creation. However, the state capital was later moved to Ikeja in 1976, and the federal capital moved to Abuja in 1991. Even though Lagos is still widely referred to as a city, the present day Lagos, also known as “Metropolitan Lagos”, and officially as “Lagos Metropolitan Area’ is an urban agglomeration or conurbation, Ikeja, the state capital of Lagos State.
I threw this question to 3 Nigerian Chefs, one of them is Chef Bolanile of @eatlivethrive Vegan Restaurant. This is one question we have been looking for an answer to.
