Guinness World Record has said Nigerian chef, Dammy did not submit an application before attempting to break her compatriot, Hilda Baci’s cooking record.
DAILY POST reported that an Ekiti-based lady, Chef Dammy took up cooking on Friday June 9, with the organisers saying she would cook for 120 hours.
Her bold attempt was welcomed with mixed reactions with some berating her for attempting to break Hilda’s record just weeks after she set the record, while others commended her bravery.
Chef Hilda Baci also endorsed Chef Dammy’s cook-a-thon via her Twitter handle.
However, Guinness World Record did not comment on Chef Dammy’s attempt throughout the duration of her cooking.
According to LegitNG, the record body has revealed why they were silent on Dammy’s attempt.
The news outfit said GWR told them that they didn’t receive an application from Chef Dammy.
“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,” Guinness World Record said per Legit.
“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.”
