You're disastrous, Omokri attacks new cook attempting to break Guinness record

Critic, Reno Omokri has bashed the new Chef in Ekiti, Damilola Adeparusi, who is attempting to break Hilda Baci’s unofficial Guinness World Record.

Adeparusi is attempting to cook for 120 hours to erase the 100 hours record set by fellow country woman, Baci last month.

Reacting to this, Omokri said there are over 40,000 records in the Guinness World Records, to which a Nigerian broke one.

“If another Nigerian wanted to be in the Book of Records, should she not have looked for some other record to break other than Hilda Baci’s potential record? Why must her target be the feat achieved by her fellow citizen?

“This is all too common in Black Africa. Crab mentality. We prefer to compete with our brothers rather than cooperate with them. And if we can’t beat them, then we pull them down! I have seen this happen so many times. Nigerians do not like each other when they meet abroad and will even undermine each other in full view of other nationalities,” he lamented.

He said Rishi Sunak got the support of Indians in the UK for his run for Prime Minister, but that Nigerians in the UK turned on Kemi Badenoch.

“I agree she had talked down on Nigeria in the past. But could we not look at the goal before us and let that be more important than the desire to get even with Mrs Badenoch? Obviously, we could not.

“Why must it be that same record? And why go after it so soon after it was potentially set? It is just so opportunistic. Why not attempt to break some other record held by some other persons from some of the country, such that if you successfully break it, you do not do it at the expense of your compatriot?

“From what I see, this new cook is not industrious. Some people may even see her as jealous or envious. Whether or not they are correct, one thing is clear, she is disastrous. What she is doing will not bring joy to Nigeria. Hilda Baci united Nigeria and Nigerians,” Omokri stated.

According to Omokri, this new challenge would disunite Nigeria and bring strife while further “exposing our cultural trait (I pray it is not a racial trait) of undermining each other. Even the Guinness Book of Records people will see us as a rather mean spirited people. What a pity!”

  1. You have said it all, my brother. The hatred amongst us that call ourselves Nigerians is sickening, and this is the most reason we have not achieved anything tangible since independence despite our wealth potential. Such a pitiable situation!

  2. It's so annoyed when I read about it. I can see a copy cat here as my kids do normally say.
    She should better pack her stuff and think of another thing.
    Aren't nonsense.

  3. How many of us even know anything about how Guinness World Records operate? I believe in free enterprise.

  4. You said it already, and that is what it is, a ''racial trait''. One of her kinsmen already said '' Hilda Baci did it for the Igbos, Dammy will do it for the Yorubas''. What a shame.

    1. That's all about 'em .... One of them was even asking me if I've seen that someone is already breaking Hilda's record and I asked her how, has Hilda been certified be0fre she should attempt of breaking her?

  5. I 100% agree with you.

  6. This is unacceptable... You are like a role model 2 many people. With your status, you don't need to intervene in dis issue. If you are a Yoruba man, it will at least be better. Someone have 2 create path 4 others 2 follow. It's a great privilege 4 Baci. If you make way inside Bush, those that mean other should not thread da path & create their own. Foolish

  7. Pulldown mentality. One came out talking nonsense on Hilda about dog, now another came out to contest against Hilda within One month. Nigerians are terrible that why we don't love ourselves. She should better pack her her pots and plate look for something else. She is a goal digger.

  8. Say by man in exile

  9. Very true in all you already said. When I first saw it I was like who did this to nigerians. We don't love ourselves not up to a month she don carry pot and spoon. Wetin she wan break again instead of looking for another thing to break she chooses to break the one that is already broken.

  10. Thank God how the whole drama ended. Let them try and see if they can break another record. Lausy people in Nigeria. Country full of nepotism and tribalism. There is no head way for the so called Nigeria. They have success in making caricature of themselves, especially the Yorubas who were fully in support of Dammy the shep not Chef. People don't reason well at all. How can you said that you are breaking a record that has not been certified? Are you crazy or what? Can you allow her to enjoy the record for a little time? You people are disgusting for my liking.
