Confirm With Us Before Making Any Attempt — Guinness World Records Warns Participants


Guinness World Records

People who are seeking to break world records have received a brief warning from the Guinness World Records (GWR).

Since Hilda Baci defeated her predecessor to achieve a new record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual, more Nigerians have given the GWR a try.

In an effort to break the record for the longest cooking marathon, Baci succeeded in his 100-hour attempt in May.

The chef attempted to break the Indian Lata Tondon’s record of 87 hours and 45 minutes from 2019.

After being scrutinised by GWR for several days, Baci was declared to have actually set a 93-hour record.

A second chef, Damilola Adeparusi, began her five-day cooking marathon shortly after Baci’s achievement.

Then Adeyeye Adeola entered the picture, also attempting to break Baci’s record.

Also joining the fray, Temitope Adebayo, an Ibadan-based chef, went public with his intention to cook for more than 120 hours.

It also came as a shock to many when Hassan Joshua Bature, a computer science lecturer at the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), announced plans to embark on 150-hour teaching marathon.

At about the same time when Joyce Ijeoma, the Nigerian masseur attempting to break the world record for the longest massage on different individuals, collapsed, GWR issued a very important reminder to participants.

In the short statement, the GWR advised participants to properly confirm with “our team” before attempting to break any world record.

“Polite reminder that you should probably have your world record title confirmed by our team before attempting it here’s how our process works,” it wrote.
