Hot Shot: Keri Hilson Cooks Up African Fufu

Published: Sunday 5th May 2013 by Sam

Keri Hilson is still cooking up her third studio album, however the R&B belle took a brief break to whip up  something quite different.

Hitting Instagram, the ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ singer shared a snap of herself making renown African dish “Fufu”. She wrote with post:

“making fufu is a reaaal workout! gotta put your back into it”

The pic will do little to quell speculation that Hilson is currently dating Congolese NBA star Serge Ibaka. That said, given that our main concern is the music rather than the romance, we’re ready for Ms. Keri to serve up that new LP. She recently told That Grape Juice that the as yet untitled set will feature production from longtime collaborators Timbaland and Polow Da Don.

Peep some of our favourite Keri moments below because we feel like it…

    “HEY MAID”

  21. yooooooooo (keristan) May 5, 2013

    she looks so good!!!!!!!!! Im just waiting for that third album, hopefully some new music by the end of the year!!! 😀

  22. May 5, 2013

    I really appreciate the old days when artist took three to four years to put out an album, but those days are long gone. I don’t understand why she’s taking so long with this album, like she has that solid of a fanbase to do so, and this is coming from someone who has been a fan of Keri’s since “Happy Juice”, “Get it Girl”, and countless others. This third album better be insane.

    • yooooooooo (keristan) May 6, 2013

      Judging from the way that polow da don and Danja have been hyping the album, its gonna be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can feel it, keri’s gonna be coming from the soul. I CANT WAIT!!!!!!

  23. JER May 5, 2013

    B**** you takin pictures of your broke ass in the kitchen!?!?! What you need to be doing is cookin up a hit album or a hit career. Ch…

  24. yooooooooo (keristan) May 6, 2013

    I can feel, her third album is gonna SLAAY!!!!!!!!!! i dont care if it sells but i KNOW that the music quality is gonna be top notch. She works with 3 of the worlds best producers (Polow, timbo and danja- who have each helped her create a defining sound of R&B, that is also soulful). She’s an absolute beast when it comes to songwriting (eg. where did he go, tell him the truth) and she can saaaaaaaannnnnngggggg! (eg. Make love, all the boys, energy, tell him the truth) NOTHING IS STOPPING HER. CANT WAINT

    Fufu is not “African” Sam…sound so ignorant. Yes, the “basic” dish consisting of a starch ingredient and water is a staple for many African societies/communities (note plural-Africa is not a homogenous CONTINENT-[not country])but as you would imagine, there are variations of this dish depending on location. Fufu is a term for the dish in West & Central African countries. There it is usually made with cassava or plantain. However, in Southern & Eastern Africa, it’s called something else…and cooked slightly differently. The starch ingredient is maize meal (what would be referred to as corn meal in the US). Now you may not have known this and may have just ran with what Keri posted, but the moral of the story is don’t simply fall back on the lame, ignorant and quite frankly, played out generalisms about “Africa”. So, not attractive! And esp in 2013 honey! Journalism (whether you’re blogging about Rihanna or writing political opinion pieces for the NY Times)always requires that you are thorough and well read. Next time, for lack of exactitude, you may make a more significant (or extremely embarrassing)and costly boo boo than your fufu one…
