3 Min Read

Ekiti State-born Damilola Adeparusi, popularly known as Chef Dammy, has taken her quest to break the Cook-a-Thon record set by Chef Hilda Baci a few weeks ago to another notch after she crossed the 100-hour limit.

Chef Dammy, an undergraduate of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), who started her marathon cooking task last week Friday, broke the record on Tuesday morning, well on her way to setting a new record of 120 hours cook-a-thon done by an individual she said was her target.

With the feat, she has matched the recent record set by Chef Hilda Baci in Lagos, which had also been confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records.

Her efforts have been recognised by many celebrities who have rallied support for her while the wife of the Ekiti State Governor, Mrs Olayemi Oyebanji, also commended her resilience.

Writing on her Twitter page, the Ekiti State First Lady urged Nigerians to celebrate Damilola’s bold pursuit.

“Miss Damilola Adeparusi, surely has our love and support as she forges ahead to make this bold statement.

“I salute your courage Chef Dammy, for your decision to run your own race. Congratulations,” the First Lady posted.
