Ekiti-based chef, Damilola Adeparusi, popularly known as Chef Dammy, has revealed plans to displace Hilda Baci as the world record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
The 22-year-old chef, who recently completed a 120-hour cooking marathon in Ekiti state, made this revelation while speaking to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, on Friday, June 16.
The 300L Mass Communication student of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), stated that though her previous 120-hour cooking marathon was not officially registered with Guinness World Record, she is determined to break the world record by organizing a 150-hour cook-a-thon next month.
This is coming barely a week after Guinness World Record officially declared Hilda Baci as the world record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes.
Speaking at the press conference, Chef Dammy said,
“I know the question that has been surrounding the minds of many people online and offline is what is next for Chef Dammy after the 120-hour cook-a-thon? What will become of Chef Dammy after the world has known her and she has been put in the spotlight? Well, Chef Dammy is open to exploration! I am open to new opportunities and new experiences in life. Now that the world knows what I am capable of doing. I think it’s high time everyone started giving me a chance to explore in diverse ways and capabilities.
Finally, I know there have been many speculations about me not registering this just-concluded cooking, but my team and I have decided to embark on this new challenge next month.
After the support I have received from fans, well-wishers, and many highly notable individuals in the society. I, Adeparusi Damilola popularly known as Chef Dammy and my team have decided to hold another cook-a-thon programme next month.
