A courageous lady, Chef Dammy, took up cooking marathon in Oye-Ekiti on Friday, June 9, without Guinness World Records official application saying she would cook for 120 hours.
Guinness World Records has said Nigerian chef Dammy did not submit an application before attempting to break her compatriot Hilda Baci’s cooking record.
Chef Hilda Baci also endorsed Chef Dammy’s cook-a-thon via her Twitter handle.
However, Guinness World Records did not comment on Chef Dammy’s attempt throughout the duration of her cooking.
“We have not received an application for this attempt. Applications can be made via the Guinness World Records website for our records management team to review.”
“Once an application is accepted, the record claimant receives a set of detailed guidelines specific to that record category that must be adhered to.
“This also details a list of evidence that must be submitted for our team to verify the record. Guinness World Records maintains a rigorous review process to maintain the integrity of each Guinness World Records title.”
Her bold attempt was welcomed with mixed reactions, with some berating her for attempting to break Hilda’s record just weeks after she set it, while others commended her bravery.
