Oyo cheers Ogbomoso chef attempting to break Guinness World Record

Oyo State Government has cheered the Ogbomoso-born chef, Tope Adebayo, popularly called Tope Maggie, who is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking by an individual.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Dotun Oyelade, led a team to the potential champion’s kitchen within the premises of the Ogbomoso Recreation Club, yesterday.

The current record holder, an Irish chef, Alan Fisher, won the competition by cooking for 119 hours 57 minutes, a few weeks ago.

He was outdone by Tope Maggie who has had marathon cooking for over 135 hours at the time of filing this report as he approaches his 200-hour mark.

Oyelade, who witnessed the moment Tope Maggie hit the 116th hour in the kitchen, described the attempt as a remarkable demonstration of the resilient spirit of youths in Oyo State.

He chatted briefly with Tope Maggie to boost his morale, after which he was offered a taste of the chef’s meals.

Oyelade urged youths that have been rooting for Tope Maggie on social media to send their wishes, stressing that the world record would be a collective win.

Oyelade, who had known Tope Maggie from his infancy, was warmly welcomed by the mother of the potential new champion, Mrs. Margaret Adebayo, also known as Mama Maggie, who’s also a caterer.
