Meet Damilola Adeperusi, also known as Chef Dami, a student from Ekiti who has caught everyone’s attention with her incredible goal of cooking non-stop for 120 hours.
She started her cook-a-thon on June 9, right after famous chef Hilda Baci finished cooking for 100 hours. People have different opinions about Chef Dami’s attempt, with some saying she should wait for a year after Hilda’s record is certified. This idea has become popular on social media.
