Lata Tondon, the Indian chef who holds the Guinness World Record for the most cooking hours by an individual, has asked Nigerians not to incite a rivalry between her and Nigerian chef Hilda Baci, who beat her time.
Tondon was verified the record holder in 2019 after completing the cooking marathon in Rewa, India, in 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 seconds.
However, on Monday, May 15, 2023, Baci, a 27-year-old graduate, broke the current record and cooked for up to 100 hours before stopping.
However, the Guinness World Record team has yet to officially identify Hilda as the new world record holder since it needs to analyse all of the data.
“We are aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record”.
Amid the impatient wait for confirmation, Nigerians began to raise concerns about a likely plot to sabotage their compatriot’s win and some persons issued threats if the Akwa Ibom indigene ends up ‘being cheated’.
In reaction, Tondon took to her social media page and urged people to maintain peace and wait for the official announcement. The Indian culinary expert said that it’s just a record and not a competition to be fought over.
“A Humble Request to all my Sisters and Brothers in Nigeria■ & India ➡to maintain peace and wait for Guinness to officially announce if the Current Record is broken or not.
Please don’t make it a Competition it’s just a Record my friends. I am a Peace loving Person and wish same for you.”
