Temitope Adebayo, also known as Tope Maggie, reportedly establishes a new Guinness World Record for marathon cooking, surpassing Irish chef Alan Fisher’s previous mark of 119 hours and 57 minutes.

In a TikTok video captioned ‘The record is broken, congrats to Nigeria, Oyo State, Chef Tope Maggie,’ he received applause from his fans.

Tope’s achievement is significant for Nigeria as it regains the title of the longest continuous cooking from Alan Fisher, who had recently surpassed chef Hilda Bassey’s 93-hour record.

Tope, with a background in Hotel Management from the Federal Polytechnic in Ede, Osun State, earned the nickname ‘Maggie’ from his mother, who taught him the art of cooking. Currently, he manages a chain of restaurants in Ogbomoso.
