Guinness World Records has finally broken silence regarding Nigerian chef, Damilola Adeparusi‘s 120-hour cook-a-thon.
Chef Dammy took up cooking in Oye-Ekiti on Friday June 9, with the organisers saying she would cook for 120 hours.
Despite the mixed reactions her cooking challenge got in the face of Guinness World Records certifying Hilda Baci’s record on Tuesday, June 13, the lady kept cooking.
On Wednesday morning, Damilola Adeparusi hit her target of 120 hours of cooking amid jubilation from folks and criticisms from others.
Some Nigerians were asking if Chef Dammy followed the right procedure or if she actually wanted to break a world record.
To clear the air, Legit.ng sent a press enquiry to the Guinness World Records on Tuesday, June 13.
A response received from the body maintained that the chef did not seek their approval before beginning the cook-a-thon as there are procedures and rules which would have been sent to her to follow.
Guinness world records said;
“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.”
