There's this craze about the king of naija swallow, but me thinks it's akpu. Love it any day and can eat it anytime. It's one meal that can sustain you for 12hrs. Can you beat that?

Well, I think Akpu or fufu as it is also called is alot much better than other swallow. Even if the price of eba increases, it still remains the same. And for the record, it's not a labourers food. It's also for all and sundry. Give it a try and you'll be hooked.
Re: Who Is The King Of Nigeria Swallow? Eba, Akpu (Fufu), Amala Or Pounded Yam. by SeanT21(f): 6:00am On May 19, 2009
Akpu aka FUFU.Is the only 1 am familiar with!!
Re: Who Is The King Of Nigeria Swallow? Eba, Akpu (Fufu), Amala Or Pounded Yam. by infobox: 10:35pm On Jun 01, 2009
I guess no one in the house is interested in Amala. Though Pounded yam is taking the lead but I reckon others would brace up.

9ja fufu doesn't stink and besides, it's an all rounder. No wonder it called 6-6. One dose of it in the moring and you're filled for the day. That's the only 9ja ling of swallow I know has got alot of name os of it's unique attributes.
