Guinness World Records shuns Chef Dammy after 120-Hours Cookathon attempt

Chef Dammy from Ekiti State succeeded in cooking non-stop for 120 hours, but despite the feat, she was not recognised by the management of Guinea World Records.

The body has maintained that the chef did not seek for approval before beginning the cook-a-thon, adding that there are procedures and rules which would have been sent to her to follow.

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.”

Recall that Chef Dammy began her cook-a-thon in Ekiti state with the intention of overtaking Hilda Baci’s 100-hour cooking record.

She was reportedly pushed into the cooking challenge by her pastor who wanted to make a name for the chef and his church.

While Hilda Baci’s record was certified by GWR on Tuesday, Dammy on the other hand got a negative feedback as the body denied being aware of her mission.
