Winner winner, chicken dinner! Kanye West stormed Nando's ahead of the BRIT Awards 2015 but he's not the only PERi PERi fan
How would you like your PERi PERi chicken Mr West?
A side of spicy rice perhaps?
Who’d have thought that chicken chain Nando’s at London’s O2 would be the backdrop for an impromptu table-mounting episode from the world’s most prominent ‘did he just do/say that’ rapper Kanye West?
Imagine our surprise then when we discovered that fans were treated to just that last night, when Kanye decided to mount a Nando’s table and make like a rap messiah before his adoring fans…albeit with a rather stony expression.
It was while tucking into a plain burger, fries, medium double-burger, garlic bread, quarter chicken and spicy rice (Kan was obvs famished) that inspiration struck, and after initially shooing fans away (‘I’m just a singer who wants to be left alone’), Mr West threw caution to the wind and declared:
‘If we are gonna do this, let’s do it right.’
He then took to the table (health and safety anyone?) with chants of ‘Yeezus’ whipping the Twitter happy mob into a frenzy around him. And all of this happened BEFORE that rather controversial BRIT Awards performance.
Check out the video of him in Nandos…
Could that tasty PERi PERi have made Kanye take leave of his senses? Was it the garlic bread – if so, order us five portions!
We’re sure he hasn’t been the first. Nando’s has quite the celeb fan base – here are our faves:
When he’s not chowing down on Bella Swan’s neck, R-Pattz is ordering chicken at London’s Victoria branch.
2. Ed Sheeran
The flame-haired one holds a Nando’s ‘black card’. The card is the stuff of legends for any aspiring Nando’s superfan – it magically entitles you to free Nando’s food for a whole year. You can’t ask for one though – only certain people are handpicked to receive one.
Yep. These boys love Nando’s SO much they decided to hold their album launch in the central London branch. Yeah, that’s real.
4. David Cameron
When he’s not out sorting political stuff, DavCam is deciding ‘thighs or wings’? He was spotted in the Bristol branch.
Queen Bey loves Nando’s enough to rack up an outrageous £1500 in order to treat her tour entourage. 18 whole ‘hot’ chickens? Pfft, we hope she has a black card.
6. Olly Murs
Olly Murs loves Nando’s. Like, LOVES Nandos. So much so he’s even done gigs in the restaurants!
7. Geordie Shore
We bet they wish they could lord it up in Nando’s with Beyonce’s budget (see above). They’re often spotted chowing down in the Newcastle branch.
8. Little Mix
The Nando’s chicken wooden spoon = 2015’s most coveted accessory. ‘Nandos!!! I Love it I’m actually addicted to it!,’ Perrie Edwards, 20, once Tweeted.
9. Niall Horan
One Direction’s Niall has a full-blown love affair with Nando’s. It’s been reported his favourtie order is: 1 xDouble Chicken wrap (Medium) – no lettuce, 1 x Spicy rice,
5 x Wings (Medium),
1 x Perinaise, 1 x Medium sauce.
He’s such a fan he apparently took Selena Gomez there on a date once! The wee charmer.
10. Professor Green
His wife Millie Mackintosh might be a healthy eating guru, but hubby Pro Green likes to fuel his shopping sprees on London’s Oxford Street by frequenting Nando’s in St. Christopher’s Place.
