My pastor paid for all my cooking program – Ekiti chef Dammy speaks as she announces a new 150-hour cookathon.
The recently finished culinary marathon was paid for, according to Ekiti-based Chef Dammy, by her pastor and churchgoers.
Dammy started cooking on June 9 and finished 120 hours later, according to the event’s organisers.
Some individuals alleged that her pastor pressured her into participating in the 120-hour cookathon, which had caused controversy.
Dammy explained the matter, stating that her pastor and churchgoers provided financial support for the cookathon, in a statement released on Twitter by the Spirit Word Global Mission.
She said that all she did was cook in the kitchen. Dammy said that because she was not engaged in the finances, she served as the church’s public face.
She said, “People always criticise about the money coming in but they don’t ask about the money that was used to start up the whole program.
This program was fully funded by my pastor and a few members of the church. I was not involved in anything. The only thing I did in everything was to cook. I was just the face of the church.”
Dammy urges people to cease circulating reports that her pastor stole the cookathon’s revenues since they are untrue. More than half of the revenue, according to her, is in her personal account.
Dammy’s words, “As a matter of fact, all the money that came in for me is not yet up to the money that was used to set up everything.
And more than half of the supposed money that came in is still in my personal account. So ongoing rumours about my pastor should please cease.”
She reaffirmed her plans to return for a fresh 150-hour cookathon in July.
