Damilola Adeparusi, the chef cooking in Oye-Ekiti, has cooked for 104 hours, and she is still cooking. A video posted on Instagram by Spirit Word Global Mission shows the moment Dammy crossed the 100-hour mark.

Criticisms, controversy plague cookathon

This is coming as controversies and criticisms have continued to plague the cookathon, which started on Friday, June 9.

Some people called her out, accusing her of desperation to shine like Hilda Baci, who cooked for 100 hours in May.

On June 12, a businessman offered to give Dammy N1 million to call off the cookathon. The man said Dammy should wait for Hilda to get her record verified before cooking.

Chef Dammy has vowed to stay in the kitchen and cook for 120 hours despite the flowing criticisms.

Many Nigerians support Dammy, show her love

But some Nigerians have also rallied support for the Ekiti chef, with one supporter even offering her N500,000 and a cooking tour in the United States.

Some young Nigerians also found their way to Oye-Ekiti to be physically present and witness the cookathon.

One lady who attended the cookathon accused Dammy of not following the rules and charging N100 for food. However, Hilda Baci broke her silence and tweeted her support for Chef Dammy on Sunday.

What’s next if Chef Dammy cooks for 120 hours?

If Chef Dammy succeeds in cooking for 120 hours, her record with still be subject to verification and confirmation by the Guinness World Records.

Even Chef Hilda Baci is still waiting for her 100-hour record to be verified, having submitted the evidence.

This means that the verified longest cookathon record is still held by Chef Lata Tondon, who cooked for 87 hours and 45 minutes in 2019.

Her record subsists until the Guinness World Record says otherwise.
