The Guinness World Records has spoken on why it is yet to endorse top Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci’s cook-a-thon.
Celebrity chef, Hilda Baci on Monday morning, May 15 broke the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking time by an individual.
The longest cooking hours was previously held by Indian chef, Lata Tondon, who cooked meals for 87 hours, 45 minutes and 00 seconds.
Hilda Baci at the time of writing this report, had cooked for 93 hours and still cooking.
Baci’s first aim was to beat the 87 hours and 45 minute record previously held by Lata Tondon, which she achieved at around 7.46am on Monday morning. But she did not want to stop there and has gone on to smash the Guinness World Record, aiming to cook for more than 96 hours.
As the famous chef goes about her activities, Nigerians are still gathered around to support her.
Her live video captured people screaming to show how very proud they are of her. It should be noted that for the past four days that her cook-a-thon has unified many Nigerians for all walks of life as they congregate at her cooking station.
Now speaking up on the cook-a-thon, after being queried for being quiet, the Guinness World Records wrote on social media:
“We are aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record”
The Guinness Book of Records, often known as the Guinness World Records, is a reference book that contains human and natural world records.
First published in 1955 by the Guinness Brewery in Ireland, it has exploded in popularity and includes a wide range of different records, such as the world’s smallest and largest, quickest and slowest, as well as the most weird and unusual accomplishments.
Individuals or groups must submit proof to the Guinness World Records team and go through a verification process to qualify for a world record listing. When a record is validated, it is put into the book and becomes an official world record.
