Boli Culture with certitude flows in the veins of Nigerians. Boli i.e roasted plantain, is dominantly eaten with groundnuts, or palm oil and fried pepper. It’s a quick naija local snack (in our opinion) and many who have hit the limelight always refer to this snack as one they constantly ate before hiting the spotlight. Of course the celebs can’t openly purchase same due to the conspicious places of sale. Imaginixmode multimedia put together a documentary about this great snack titled BOLI CULTURE. it was directed by Somadina Okoye with Chike Awogu, Segun Adekoya, Abiodun Shote as part of the production team.
This is the synopsis Imaginixmode unveiled about BOLI CULTURE:
“Nigeria is very rich in culture and that richness is clearly evident in our different foods. Plantain is one of those local foods that is prepared and combined in so many ways. We zeroed in on its roasted form and went round Nigeria to find out the different ways people combine and eat roasted plantain popularly called Boli”.
The documentary has been shortlisted for the Afrinolly Short Film Competition 2013. Do you love Boli… cos we do!
