The cookathon is expected to last for five days or 120 hours, which is her stated aim.
Since the news of her cookathon broke on social media, many Nigerians are focusing on her to see how far she could go. Some were seen in a video cheering her up.
Some, however, criticised her, saying she is trying to take the shine off Chef Hilda Baci, who put in 100 hours in the kitchen and is awaiting verification by the Guinness World Records.
But the chef is determined to go through with her cooking conquest. When she hit 43 hours, @SpiritWordGM posted a new update. It read:
