The German forward stated this while expressing his fondness for the African delicacy, fufu.

The 21-year-old footballer discussed his cultural heritage during an appearance on the popular culinary show ‘How Hungry Are You’ hosted by Chef Serge Ibaka.

Born in Stuttgart, Germany, to a Nigerian father and a German mother, Musiala was raised in England from the age of seven.

Despite his European upbringing, the young Bayern sensation has a strong affinity for Nigerian culture, something he credits to his father’s influence.

“My dad is from Nigeria and he always tells me about the culture and everything about African foods. My dad made fufu while I was growing up back in England; he made this dish [fufu] every other day,” Musiala shared during the show.

His father’s stories and homemade fufu have kept him connected to his African roots and instilled in him a love for the continent’s rich cultural heritage.

“I have never been to Africa before even though I always wanted to but we have never really had the time to go over there,” he explained.
