Temitope Adebayo, popularly known as Tope Maggie, has reportedly achieved a remarkable feat by breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous cooking, surpassing the previous record held by Irish chef Alan Fisher. Alan Fisher’s record of 119 hours and 57 minutes has been eclipsed by Tope Maggie’s outstanding performance.
The achievement was shared with Tope Maggie’s fans through a TikTok video captioned, “The record is broken, congrats to Nigeria, Oyo State, Chef Tope Maggie,” accompanied by applause from supporters.
Tope Maggie’s success is not only a personal milestone but also holds significance for Nigeria, reclaiming the title of the longest continuous cooking from Alan Fisher, who had earlier dethroned chef Hilda Bassey with her 93-hour record.
Tope Maggie, who studied Hotel Management at the Federal Polytechnic in Ede, Osun State, earned the nickname ‘Maggie’ from his mother, who played a crucial role in teaching him the art of cooking. Currently managing a chain of restaurants in Ogbomoso, Tope Maggie’s accomplishment adds a notable chapter to the culinary achievements from Nigeria.
