In a determined attempt to achieve the coveted Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time, Temitope Adebayo, a skilled chef based in Ibadan, has unveiled his ambitious plan to undertake a grueling 140-hour cook-a-thon. The aspiring record-breaker aims to surpass the accomplishments of Chef Hilda Baci, who recently completed a 100-hour cooking marathon, as well as Chef Dammy, who is currently engaged in a formidable battle to complete a 120-hour cook-a-thon.
With unwavering determination, Chef Temitope Adebayo has set his sights on claiming the title. To solidify his commitment, he proudly shared screenshots of his registration with the Guinness World Records, along with an email confirming the authenticity of his entry. Scheduled to commence on November 1, 2023, in Ibadan, Oyo state, the 140-hour cook-a-thon promises to be a remarkable feat.
The news of Chef Temitope Adebayo’s audacious undertaking quickly spread, garnering attention and sparking reactions. Gossipmillnaija, an online news platform, was among the first to report the development, and the announcement prompted diverse responses from social media users. Gabriii__ella expressed a playful jest, teasing the Ibadan people, while duchessomoh delved into a historical commentary, asserting that the Yorubas have a tendency to appropriate and claim credit for innovations originating elsewhere.
Others, like ella._pretty6 and izzy_whale, questioned the necessity of breaking existing records and suggested alternative challenges. Notably, davidoriazowan humorously speculated that if this trend continued, soon everyone in Ibadan would be featured in the Guinness World Records.
Accompanying the article were screenshots shared by the chef, providing visual evidence of his Guinness World Record registration and demonstrating his dedication to this remarkable culinary endeavor.
