In the bustling world of social media, misinformation spreads faster than the truth. Nigerian chef Hilda Baci’s attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon is a prime example.

Baci’s aim was to cook for 97 hours over four days, a feat that would surpass the existing record set by Lata Tondon of India, who cooked for 87 hours and 45 minutes in 2019. The marathon, which was open to the public at Amore Gardens in Lekki, Lagos, concluded successfully, but the official confirmation from Guinness World Records is yet to come.

Guinness World Records stated on their Twitter page:

“We’re aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record.”

This statement was in response to a Twitter user who questioned why Guinness World Records wasn’t featuring Baci’s attempt on their pages.

“Not showing or talking about Hilda’s cook-a-thon? Can’t see anything on their pages (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube),” the tweet read.

According to the standard application process outlined on the Guinness World Records website, individuals attempting a world record should expect:

  • A self-service option for application and evidence submission.
  • Receiving guidelines in 12 weeks (3 months).
  • Review of evidence within 12 weeks (3 months).
  • A 2-week response time for any questions once the application is underway.

“Please note that our Standard Application route is for individuals only. All other applications will be forwarded to our Consultancy Services team.”

Therefore, it’s clear that the confirmation process involves a significant amount of time for review and verification. Any announcements suggesting that Baci’s record has been confirmed are premature and not based on official information.

While the enthusiasm and pride of Nigerians in supporting one of their own are commendable, it’s crucial to wait for the official confirmation from Guinness World Records. This will ensure that Baci’s achievement, if confirmed, is celebrated based on truth and not clouded by misinformation.
