Olayemi Oyebanji, the First Lady of Ekiti, has expressed admiration for Damilola Adeparusi, also known as Chef Dammy, who is currently attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon lasting 120 hours.

The First Lady commended Chef Dammy for her decision to pursue her own path and congratulates her on her courage.
On Sunday, Chef Dammy received a donation of N100,000 from Remi Omowaye, the former Commissioner for Works in Osun State.
Remi expressed that records are meant to be broken, and Damilola should not be condemned for attempting to surpass Hilda’s record.
At the time of writing this report, Chef Dammy had already reached the 77th hour of her cooking marathon.
