A viral video circulating online shows Adeparusi reportedly completing 15 hours of the planned 120-hour marathon. However, her decision to start the event has sparked mixed reactions among Nigerians, particularly due to the timing in relation to Hilda’s recent achievement.

Some individuals have accused Adeparusi of envy, suggesting that she should have waited for Guinness World Records to confirm Hilda’s record before attempting her own cooking marathon.

Twitter user @Detolah expressed their frustration, stating, “Naija sha!!!! I think most of these people suddenly resurrecting are envious and annoying. This is why you need to hide your successes from people, they will go ahead and try to steal it from you. At least let Hilda get an award first. Make breeze blow on it. Chef gbigbeyiyan🙄.”

Others, like @professorudeme, questioned why some people feel envious of others, emphasizing that it is not a competition. Meanwhile, @SEOtuas criticized Adeparusi for not waiting until Hilda’s achievement was recognized.

Commenting on the situation, @ArrabBucknor joked about the availability of cooking gas throughout the marathon, expressing curiosity about how it would end.

Another Twitter user, @ShwagDr, made a general statement suggesting that Nigerian women do not support each other and tend to compete against one another. However, @Mochainaxxx called Adeparusi’s decision “100% unnecessary,” highlighting that many Nigerians are rooting for Hilda’s success and that another individual interfering with her accomplishment is unnecessary.

The controversy surrounding Adeparusi’s cooking marathon has ignited a debate among Nigerians, with some questioning her motives and timing. The ultimate outcome of her cooking marathon remains to be seen.
