Ekiti Chef Dammy Announces New 150 Hours Cookathon

Ekiti-based Chef Dammy has said it was her pastor and church members that paid for her just-concluded cooking marathon. Dammy commenced cooking on Friday, June 9 and the organizers of the event said she cooked for 120 hours.

The 120 hours cookathon had resulted in controversy, and some people claimed that her pastor was pushing her into it. However, Dammy clarified the situation in a statement sent on Twitter by the Spirit Word Global Mission, claiming that the cookathon was financially supported by her pastor and churchgoers.

She said all she did was to enter the kitchen and cook. Dammy said she was like the face of the church as she was not involved in the funding.

She said,

“People always criticise about the money coming in but they don’t ask about the money that was used to start up the whole program. This program was fully funded by my pastor and a few members of the church. I was not involved in anything. The only thing I did in everything was to cook. I was just the face of the church.”

Dammy says rumours that her pastor took the proceeds of the cookathon were untrue and asked people to stop spreading such lies. She said more than half of the money generated are in her personal account.

Dammy’s words, “As a matter of fact, all the money that came in for me is not yet up to the money that was used to set up everything. And more than half of the supposed money that came in is still in my personal account. So ongoing rumours about my pastor should please cease.”

Dammy also restated that she is coming back for a new 150-hour cookathon in July.

17-year-old Nigerian boy defies UTME failure, makes N14.5m from comic books he writes

A Nigerian boy who faced disappointment after failing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) twice has found immense success by tapping into his talent as a comic book writer.

The inspiring story, which went viral on Twitter thanks to user Dev Tobs, sheds light on the young boy’s journey to financial prosperity and academic pursuits.

According to the Twitter thread, the unnamed boy attempted the UTME twice but did not achieve the desired results.

However, his family recognized his gift for writing and encouraged him to explore it further.

In a fortuitous twist, his brother, a close friend of Dev Tobs and a software engineer, advised him to publish his comic books on popular platforms like Amazon, Etsy, and others.

The boy channeled his efforts into his newfound passion and began publishing his comic books on the online platforms. The response was overwhelming, with readers appreciating his creative storytelling and unique artistic style.

As a result, his comic books started gaining significant traction and popularity, leading to substantial financial success.

The Twitter thread revealed that the talented writer amassed an astonishing sum of N14.5 million (approximately $19,000) within a span of two years.

Overwhelmed by his success, the boy made a life-changing decision to pursue his dreams further by relocating to Canada to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

The tweet reads;

“He wrote JAMB twice with no major headway, but his folks noticed he had a flair for writing, hence his brother who’s my close pal, also a software Engineer, advised he starts hoisting the comic books he writes on this Amazon thingy, Etsy and one other one.” He has made so much money from it.

“Yes, you didn’t misread, he made $19k (N14.5 million). Two years down the line today, I got news he’s moved up to Canada for his bachelor’s and I couldn’t stop but feel happier.”
