Chef Dammy’s 120-Hour Cook-a-thon: Guinness World Records Speaks Out
The 120-hour cook-a-thon by Nigerian chef Damilola Adeparusi has finally been acknowledged by Guinness World Records.
FastNews reports that the organization argued that the chef should have followed the protocols and rules before starting the cook-a-thon, but she chose not to do so.
“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.”
Recall that Chef Dammy’s goal in starting her cook-a-thon in Ekiti state was to beat Hilda Baci’s 100-hour cooking record.
According to reports, Chef Dammy’s pastor pressured her into the cooking competition because he wanted the chef and his church to gain notoriety.
While Hilda Baci’s record was yesterday certified by GWR, Dammy received a negative response because the body denied knowing about her goal.
