Throughout the competition, “Team 2” showcased exceptional teamwork, creativity, and a deep understanding of flavour profiles, and captured the hearts and taste buds of the judges and the audience.

Speaking with “Team 2” in an interview with an ACJ-OAU correspondent on how they felt about this great success, Temiloluwa said, ‘I am grateful and very excited. I found out about this event today, and I said let go and cook. This is a good push for my business coming on the way. I am grateful to God and my friend Damsel because she is my number one supporter. Thank you, Maggi’.

‘I feel good for winning, and I didn’t want to participate, but my friends supported me, and I am happy I came here.’

Praise, the only male on the team, noted that, ‘Firstly, it was very unexpected, and we do our thing. I was scared when the chef team came to check our food twice, thinking maybe something went wrong with the food. After the result, I was happy. In my team, we worked together and decided on what we wanted to do before cooking; this helped us.’

The event ended with a fun-filled and joyous atmosphere, as the attendees enjoyed music, games, and entertainment while also savoring the delicious jollof rice provided by Maggi.
