My name is Abiodun, but my friends call me Fsharp. I am a pianist by profession and I love moi-moi. I hail from Ogun and I am a die-hard fan of the Italian football club “Juventus”. Basically, my love for moi-moi started way back and then it was beans I grew up loving but when I discovered that the same beans can be converted to something nicer and better, I switched places from beans lover to moi-moi lover.

Moi-moi is almost a regular meal you’d always stumble on in a five-star owambe (party). One of the reasons why I chose the meal was because you hardly see beans being served at any party whether it is high class or lower class.

A good combination of moi-moi, a bit of jollof rice, then a fraction of fried rice and finally, a large portion of chicken will make a wholesome meal any day in any party. I love moi-moi, what about you?

For me, my African beans pudding a.k.a Moi-moi must be present in every rice that must pass through my esophagus in order to make my meal not just complete but also striking a balance between carbohydrate and protein. Check out the strategies of the pudding.
