GWR: Reno Omokri Blasts New Cook Attempting To Break Baci’s 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!”
