Didier Drogba's mother is preparing traditional west African food for a group of 60 traveling Ivory Coast fans at the African Cup.

Clotilde Drogba works in a makeshift kitchen at a dusty stadium on the outskirts of Malabo preparing Ivorian dishes such as chicken and fish with rice, plantains, potatoes and spicy sauces.

Clotilde, who also prepared food for supporters at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, says she is in Equatorial Guinea to support her son, support her country and to ''be helpful to people.''

Ivory Coast, which has already qualified for the quarterfinals, plays Angola in its final Group B match on Monday.
