Nigerian Chef Hilda Baci’s claim to have set a new cook-a-thon record has not been officially verified by the Guinness World Record (GWR), despite the celebration in Africa over her achievement.
The GWR has not made any public statement on Baci’s feat, which has left her fans in doubt and frustration.
A fan expressed dissatisfaction on Twitter and asked why the GWR’s official account had not posted anything about Baci’s cook-a-thon on their social media platforms.
The GWR replied, “We’re aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record.”
The absence of official recognition from the GWR has raised questions about the validity of Baci’s alleged record-breaking feat.
However, Baci’s supporters are still hopeful and enthusiastic about the possibility of her being officially acknowledged as a Guinness World Record holder.
Baci’s feat, which reportedly surpassed a previous record held by an Indian Chef, has sparked interest and excitement in Africa’s culinary scene.
The event, which is still ongoing, has involved Baci cooking for more than 88 hours non-stop, displaying her culinary skills in front of a live audience while coping with difficult weather conditions.
