1. Tiwa Savage

Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage caused quite the stir when she uploaded a video unto her social media. In that video, she was seen pouring grounded sugar on amala before eating it. She captioned the video “I like what I like”.

In her latest interview with Glamour Magazine for their latest March 2021 issue she included it among her 5 Things to Know About. It seems this is a very big part of Tiwa’s eating routine and it’s so weird but if she likes it, then oh well.

2. Ycee

Singer Ycee shared a story of when he made a very weird food combination and explained the catastrophic results that came from it.

Taking to Twitter, the singer wrote:

I wanted to eat garden-egg buh dere was no peanut butter...so i bought moi-moi with it..and now ..my farts are somethin else!!

Instead of eating the garden egg with peanut butter, Ycee chose to eat it with moi-moi. What kind of combination is that? Moi-moi and garden egg. At least, we now know how that kind of combination ends.

3. Waje

Now, this one is not too strange but something about it doesn’t sit well with my spirit.

In a tweet from 2014, when asked what her favorite food was, singer Waje revealed that her favorite food was okro soup without oil.

I had to go and google what that looks like and what I’m seeing just doesn’t sit well with me. Okro soup without oil? Why?

4. Dolapo Oni

Another one that doesn’t sit well with my spirit as a lover of meat and as an extension, all things meatpie, I was shocked to discover that Dolapo Oni eats her own meatpie without eating the meat.

She buys meatpie just to eat the crust. Meatpie without the meat? Isn’t that one just pie?

5. Femi Jacobs

When someone took to Twitter to share a very rare food combination they had seen, Femi Jacobs retweeted it with the response “Small tin,” indicating that he not only saw nothing wrong with the combination but was also happy to try it and maybe had even done it in the past.

The combination was beans topped with Spaghetti and one ese eran (cow leg).

6. Vee

Big Brother contestant and singer Vee revealed information that doesn’t sit well with me and I’m sure many Nigerians everywhere.

The singer revealed that not only does she not eat pounded yam with hand, she doesn’t understand why people can.

In her own words,

If you use your hands to eat pounded yam, you are something else. All those bacterias on my hand. Touching my food. Touching my mouth. NO.

Does this mean she doesn’t eat any swallow with hand? Doesn’t sit right with me. Yemi Alade said it best when she agreed that there’s no other way to eat swallow than with hand.

7. Mayorkun

When a fan asked Mayorkun what his weirdest food combination was, Mayorkun revealed that the answer was, get this – Fufu and Bread.


Like, you’re just swallowing dry fufu with dry bread? Why? Who is punishing you? Why this?

These celebrities have some very strange food habits.
