Photos: How Many Of You Have Tasted This Before?

Lol even in 2015 someone is still proud of this. They say it’s called Aku in Igbo but Yorubas call it E sun sun. I remember when we were young and would visit my grandma, people around there at night kill them and fry them and swear they taste delicious. It wouldn’t have made news but a lot of people still fancy it and have been talking about it online. The only thing they do to them after killing them is to rinse and fry them! They don’t extract anything out of it, before they fry and eat o. Hmm, do you know it? Have you tasted it before? Let's know.

    3. Sweet shingei, insects are the best source of pure proteins, there's nothing to be ashamed of, guess it's fine to eat caviar but not this cos it's African.
