Guinness World Records has responded after Nigerian chef Hilda Baci cried out about the delay in verifying her cook-a-thon.
Recall that Baci embarked on the cooking marathon in an attempt to break the world record for the longest cooking time by an individual.
She achieved this feat by cooking nonstop for four days, surpassing the previous record of 87 hours and 45 minutes set by Indian chef Lata Tondon on Monday, May 15.
The 26-year-old restaurateur from Akwa Ibom set a new record of 100 hours, but her achievement is yet to be verified by Guinness World Records.
According to them, they need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record.
Taking to her Twitter handle on Monday, June 1, Hilda Baci revealed that she had submitted all the evidence and has been refreshing her email constantly for the latest response from Guinness World Records.
“Not me refreshing my email every second since we submitted all the evidence to Guinness World Records,” she tweeted.
In response to Hilda Baci’s post on Twitter, GWR revealed that their records team is currently reviewing the evidence.
“Our records team is working on it,” the official Twitter handle of Guinness World Records replied Baci’s tweet.
