“We will review Hilda Baci’s evidence before officially confirming a record” the Guinness World Record has explained after being queried for not showing or talking about chef Hilda Baci’s cook-a-ton.

Kemi Filani recalls that Top Nigerian chef, Hilda Buci, on Monday morning broke the Guiness World Record for the longest cooking time.

The longest cooking hours was previously held by Indian Chef Lata Tondon, who cooked meals for 87 hours, 45 minutes and 00 seconds.


Hilda Baci at the time of writing this report, had cooked for 91 hours and still cooking.

Baci’s first aim was to beat the 87 hours and 45 minute record previously held by Lata Tondon, which she achieved at around 7.46am on Monday morning. But she did not want to stop there and has gone on to smash the Guinness World Record, aiming to cook for more than 96 hours.

As the famous chef goes about her activities, Nigerians are still gathered around to support her.

Her live video captured people screaming to show how very proud they are of her. It should be noted that for the past four days that her cooking hackathon has unified many Nigerians for all works of life as they congregate at her cooking station.

Now speaking up on the cook-a-ton, the Guinness World Records wrote on social media “We are aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record”



The Guinness Book of Records, often known as the Guinness World Records, is a reference book that contains human and natural world records.

First published in 1955 by the Guinness Brewery in Ireland, it has exploded in popularity and includes a wide range of different records, such as the world’s smallest and largest, quickest and slowest, as well as the most weird and unusual accomplishments.

Individuals or groups must submit proof to the Guinness World Records team and go through a verification process to qualify for a world record listing. When a record is validated, it is put into the book and becomes an official world record.


What has Hilda Baci said about the Guinness World Record?

Baci told reporters: “The journey to the cook-a-thon started five years ago. It is one of my biggest aspirations and I am glad that I took the bold step to embark on this adventure. I have taken time to prepare for this psychologically and I am proud to finally take on this challenge.”

“The cook-a-thon is also an opportunity to tell some of the positive stories that come from Africa through the meals that we make. This attempt is also proof of the strength young people can exhibit with the right platform and support. I look forward to receiving support from people across the world to achieve this feat”.
