It came as a shock to many when an unknown chef, Adeola Adeyeye, surfaced on the internet.
She is attempting a 150-hour cooking marathon like chef Damilola had announced to do in July.
One would wonder if the only activity to gain Guinness World Records (GWR) is now cooking. Or is it an easy way out?
Adeola is an Ondo-based chef and she began the cookathon on Friday, June 30th.
This is coming after Hilda Baci got her confirmation from Guinness World Records for the title of the longest cooking hours recorded by an individual.
However, Hilda got it with a total cook-time of 93 hours and 11 minutes.
The former record holder of this title before Hilda was an Indian Chef named Lata Tondon, who held the Guinness World Record for 87 hours and 45 minutes in the year 2019.
Attempts On Cook-a-thon
Shortly after Hilda’s cook-a-thon, self-acclaimed Ekiti chef Damilola Adeparusi attempted to beat Hilda’s record by going for a 120-hour cooking stretch.
However, she didn’t follow the due procedure set by Guinness World Records and, as a result, couldn’t make any headway with her plan.

After that attempt, Chef Damilola announced she would be going for another 150-hour cookathon in July, this time following due procedures.
Before Chef Dammy could get on with her plan like she announced earlier, Adeola Adeyeye began cooking on Friday.
She has her kitchen set up in the Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
She is scheduled to conclude on Thursday, July 6, 2023, at TMF Lounge and Bar in Ondo State.
Adeola is a graduate of ESAE University, Cotonou. She will be hoping to meet all the criteria required by Guinness World Records to set a new world record.
