Cook-a-thon: Tope avenges Hilda Baci, awaits GWR confirmation


Nigerian chef Temitope Adebayo, better known as Tope Maggie, has reportedly shattered the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual. 

Surpassing Irish chef Alan Fisher’s previous record of 119 hours and 57 minutes, Tope Maggie successfully completed a 200-hour cook-a-thon, concluding in the early hours of Saturday, November 18th.

According to Vanguard, the cook-a-thon commenced on Thursday evening, November 9th, at the Ogbomoso Recreation Club in Oyo State, Nigeria. 

Throughout the 200-hour challenge, Tope Maggie prepared various dishes, drawing cheers and admiration from supporters gathered at the venue.

With this achievement, Tope Maggie has surpassed the record set by fellow Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, who previously held the title until being dethroned by Alan Fisher. Tope Maggie’s remarkable accomplishment is now awaiting official confirmation from the Guinness World Records.

A graduate of Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun State, where he studied Hotel Management, Tope Maggie’s culinary passion stems from his mother, who inherited the nickname “Maggie” and a deep love for cooking. Currently, Tope Maggie operates a successful chain of restaurants in Ogbomoso.
