UBA and Transcorp Tony Elumelu

Serial entrepreneur, Tony Elumelu, has stopped to buy roasted corn in Lagos in an apparent profession of his love for the local treat.

The 56-year-old posted a video of himself on Thursday on Instagram buying roasted corn.

The philanthropist had joined in the debate over which tasted better between the Nigerian recipe of jollof rice and that of Senegal after he had lunch on Wednesday with President Macky Sall of Senegal.

Elumelu said on Thursday: “Jollof is nice but some days we sample roasted corn along the Lagos express…Some cravings die hard🤣 #TOEWay #roastedcorn #cornlove #jollofwars #streetfood.”

Elumelu is married to Awele, a medical doctor. They got married in 1993. The pair have seven children — five girls and two boys.
