Ekiti-based chef Damilola Adeparusi, a.k.a Chef Dami, on Sunday, continued her quest to break Hilda Baci’s unofficial 100-hour Guiness World Record.
Adeparusi, who is a student of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) has hit 60 hours out of her targeted 120 hour cooking marathon in Ilupeju-Ekiti.
In a Facebook post marking her milestone, she wrote: “Yoooom
“🔥60hrs cooking time, Lord you are great thanks to all my cans and Supporters . The love is kind , the love is amazing. I appreciate you all for standing by my side”
Adeparusi started her 120 hour marathon cooking task at 12 noon on Friday, in a small kitchen with little ventilation.
Adeparusi is representing a church, Spirit Word Global Mission, in the cook-a-thon and she is attempting to reach 120 hours goal.
She has been able to make varieties of food such as: rice and beans, beans porridge, Semovita with vegetables, porridge, spaghetti, among other delicious meals.
However, the quest has caused a social media frenzy over the weekend and received with mixed feelings.
Pulse exclusively spoke to a Spokesperson of Chef Dammy, the Ekiti chef who is attempting to break the world records for the longest time spent cooking.
Chef Dammy’s spokesperson told Pulse that she applied to Guinness World Records before attempting. This is because an application is necessary for recognition by Guinness World Records upon successful completion.
When asked about the news that people were asked to pay for the food Chef Dammy cooked, as well as other rumours circulating like the gas being turned off.
The spokesperson said they were all false. “Don’t believe anything you read on social media, people are just trying to bring us down.”
