The Guinness World Records has assured the public that they will meticulously review all evidence before officially confirming the remarkable feat achieved by Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci.
Baci, who recently announced her intention to set a new world record for the longest cooking marathon, captivated the nation with her extraordinary achievement.
In the early hours of Monday, Baci made history at the picturesque Amore Gardens in Lekki, Lagos, after cooking continuously for more than 87 hours and 45 minutes.
Her incredible endurance surpassed the previous record set by India’s Lata Tondon in 2019, cementing her position as a culinary trailblazer in Nigeria.

However, as Nigerians celebrated Baci’s accomplishment on various social media platforms, questions arose regarding the Guinness World Records’ silence on her remarkable feat.
Twitter users celebrated Baci’s achievement, expressing their enthusiasm while raising concerns about the Guinness World Records’ apparent lack of acknowledgement.
One user took to Twitter to voice their confusion: “Why is Guinness World Record not showing or talking about Hilda’s cook-a-thon? Can’t see anything on their pages (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube).”
Responding promptly to the queries, the Guinness World Records reassured the public that they were fully aware of Baci’s amazing record attempt.
However, they emphasized the importance of conducting a thorough review of all the evidence before making an official announcement.
“We are aware of this amazing record attempt; we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record,” stated the organization, emphasizing their commitment to ensuring the integrity of the records they recognize.
Baci, whose passion for cooking knows no bounds, is expected to conclude her cook-a-thon when she reaches 97 hours.
Throughout her journey, she has captured the admiration and support of Nigerians, who eagerly await the final verdict from the Guinness World Records.
