Ondo Chef Declares Guinness World Record Approval for 150-Hour Cook-a-thon
An Ondo-based chef, Adeola Adeyeye, 26, also known as ‘Chef Deo,’ has embarked on a culinary challenge in an attempt to dethrone her compatriot and the current cook-a-thon Guinness World Records, GWR, holder, Hilda Baci.
With the main target of surpassing Baci’s historical 93 hours and 11 minutes record, Chef Deo revealed that the GWR is aware of her intentions and received their go-ahead before embarking on the cook-a-thon.
Politics Nigeria gathered that people within and outside the town where she is doing the cook-a-thon have trooped in to support the Esae University graduate, Cotonou, Benin Republic, as she had gone past 47 hours.
Chef Deo’s attempt comes just weeks after another Nigerian chef, Adeparusi Damilola, known as Chef Dammy, undertook a 120-hour cook-a-thon in Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State.
However, Dammy was reportedly unable to notify GWR before commencing the cooking marathon.
Chef Deo’s cook-a-thon challenge commenced on June 30, 2023, in Ile-Oluji, the headquarters of Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo Local Government in Ondo State.
The cook-a-thon is scheduled to be concluded on July 6, 2023.
Speaking on the chef’s determination, her manager, Ayotunde Fagbamiye, revealed that after a thorough review and assessment, GWR, acknowledged and authorized her to proceed with the record attempt.
Fagbamiye expressed Chef Deo’s optimism and enthusiasm in accomplishing the task and becoming the new record holder of a cook-a-thon.
“Guinness World Records granted her approval to undertake the cook-a-thon.
“We were elated upon receiving the notification that she could proceed to break the record for an individual’s cooking marathon.
“She possesses great energy and is prepared to cook for 150 hours.” her manager said.
