Tope’s achievement marks a significant win for Nigeria, looking to reclaim the title for the longest continuous cooking from Alan Fisher, who had recently dethroned another Nigerian chef, Hilda Bassey, after her 93-hour record.

Tope, named “Maggie” by his mother, who taught him how to cook, was a student of hotel management at the Federal Polytechnic in Ede, Osun State.

He currently manages a chain of restaurants in Ogbomoso.
