Tartenger Victor, the Benue-based chef better known as Naira Victor, has concluded his attempt to set a new world record for the longest cooking marathon.


Naira Victor had announced his plan to cook for 135 hours via his social media platforms.

The chef began his cooking marathon on Tuesday, February 27, and concluded the exercise on Sunday, March 3.

The exercise was held at the Tiger Bar, Ishaya Bakut, opposite B division police station, Makurdi, Benue state capital.


During the attempt, the chef distributed some of the food to the internally displaced persons (IDPs) around the community.

“The chef has now surpass 80 hours of non-stop cooking and is still as determined and energetic as before. In line with his dream goal of feeding the internally displaced persons, today food was taken to the IDP camp where thousands were fed. He took a 20 minutes break earlier and is now back with your favorite kitchen assistant to cook for the beautiful people of Benue,” a post on his X page reads.

He also revealed that the Guinness World Record (GWR) approved the exercise.

Alan Fisher, the Irish chef, is the current world record holder after cooking for 119 hours and 57 minutes.

Last November, the GWR certified Fisher as the record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual after he surpassed Nigerian chef Hilda Baci’s record of 93 hours and 11 minutes.
