Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina, has thrown his weight behind the daring adventure of a student chef, Damilola Adeparusi by donating a sum whooping cash gift to encourage the Ekiti born student of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE).

Damilola is determined to break the current 100 hour marathon cooking exercise in the next few hours as she has already gone on marathon cooking for more than 85 hours at the time of filing this report on Monday, June 12, 2023.

Senior special Adviser to the VC, Dr. Dayo Sobowale disclosed this to TopNewsng in Ado-Ekiti on Monday. He said the cash donation is to encourage Adeparusi in areas of logistics.

Damilola’s obvious ambition is to break the world record of another Nigerian lady, Hilda Baci, who recently cooked for 100 hours in Lagos.

She has been cooking for over 85 hours at an apartment in a community in Oye Local Government area of Ekiti State.

Adeparusi started her 120 hours marathon cooking task at 12am on Friday morning but in a very small space kitchen with little ventilation.

Although she has no medical arrangements for medical personnels to be on ground in case of any unforseen circumstance, but her effort is already drawing global and media attention.

Security agencies were not available to safe guard the environment except few private security officers popularly called bouncers.

Dammy as fondly called by friends is not only a chef but also a poet, songwriter, and editor. Her official social media pages carry these titles as well.

She is a curious person and has passion for researching and learning about new things.

The young lady is representing a church, Spirit Word Global Mission, in the cook-a-thon and she is attempting to break Hilda’s 100hrs record with her 120 hours goal.

She has been able to make varieties of food such as rice and beans, beans porridge, semovita with vegetables, porridge, spaghetti, among other delicious meals.

Reacting, the Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ekiti State council, Comrade Rotimi Ojomoyela had sent words of encouragement to her and urged Ekiti indigenes to show supports for her to make the state proud.

The state government through the wife of the state government, Mrs
Oyebanji has sent words of encouragement to her. So also has the Leadership of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ekiti State in the person of comrade Rotimi Ojomoyela and other distinguished Nigerians.

He daring Damilola could be watched live on the social media with the name of the church sponsoring her. They include Facebook page, spiritwordlive and Instagram, spiritwordglobalmission.
