Netizens have taken to Facebook to drag an Ekiti State chef, Damilola Adeparusi, who is attempting to break Hilda Baci’s 100 hours cooking marathon completed in Lekki, Lagos State.
Adeparusi has earmarked 120 hours for herself to break the yet-to-be-certified record made by Hida Baci.
The Oye-based lady is currently greeted by friends and well-wishers who are tasting the different meals cooked.
Recall that after Hilda Baci’s certification, she will be displacing the current world record holder, Lata Tondon, an Indian chef who achieved the feat in 2019 with 87 hours 45 minutes record uninterrupted cooking.
Meanwhile, some internet users frowned at the action of Adeparusi tagging it as sabotage of the achievement of a fellow countrywoman.
However, others have hailed her for looking towards achieving such a great feat.
A user, Victoria George said, “Hilda has not broken the Guinness World Records, you have started your own.”
Another user, Adesoji Agboola said, “Unemployment na bad thing oo. This is what happens when you associate unnecessary publicity and give unnecessary credence to issues that aren’t relevant.”
A verified user, Chinenye Azubuike, opined, “Will she meet the criteria? It’s not only about cooking. She has to cook with the less privileged and also feeds the special people while standing to cook.
“Did she write to GWR? Where are the judges from GWR? Did she do the 24hrs trial and sent it to GWR? Lots of rules are attached.
“I wish her all the best even though I know she won’t make it cos her eyes are already showing weakness.
“Meanwhile where are that Liberian man and the Kenyan woman that wanted to break the record after Hilda? The pots and plating are even disturbing my eyes talk less of the eyes of GWR,” she added.
Abubakar Yakubu stressed, “Kontinue! absolutely no initiative, only waiting for someone to start something and then others will join. National sibling rivalry?
“Everybody wan blow. Why must it be this same record of Hilda Baci? Why can’t she try other fields? Even Hilda is yet to receive her own certificate. Haba,” Chris Henry wrote.
“So who are the spectators?,” Michael Nungo queried.
Ikechukwu Esinwoke said, “Can’t you wait for at least 1 year before you do this rubbish? Na waooo for Naija people.”
Notwithstanding, some netizens wished Adeparusi well in her quest. Womi Odd said, “Good luck, go girl.”
Ade Ayemi said, “Best of luck. Let’s break the record. Make sure you invite Guinness before you proceed.”
“Best of luck dear. This is Nigeria and “overtaking” is allowed,” Odom Oluchukwu wrote.
