Why Guinness book of records haven’t confirmed Hilda Baci as new record holder

The Guinness World Records has recognized Nigerian chef, Hilda Effiong Bassey, popularly known as Hilda Baci’s move to break a world record.

But, the Guinness World Records said it will first review all the evidence first before it can officially confirm if she is the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon.

It was reported earlier on Monday that Hilda Baci broke the record for the longest cooking time after cooking for more than 87 hours and 45 minutes.

She broke the record previously set by Indian chef, Lata Tondon in 2019.

Responding to a question asked by a Twitter user – AlexanderDGreat – on Monday, the Guinness World Records said it would review evidence before declaring that Baci had indeed broken the record.

“Why is Guinness World Record not showing or talking about Hilda‘s cook-a-ton? Can’t see anything on their pages (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube),” the Twitter user had asked.

Responding, Guinness World Records tweeted, “We are aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record.”
