The Guinness World Record’s tweet announcing Hilda Baci as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon (individual) is its best-performing tweet.

The record-affirming organization disclosed this in a new tweet on Thursday.

It stated that its earlier tweet of 13 June had reached nearly 25 million news feeds.

“Yeah, so this is our best performing tweet of all time with nearly 25 million news feeds reached,” Guinness World Record (GWR) tweeted at 12:03 pm Nigerian time.

Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci set the new record for the longest cooking marathon with a time of 93 hours 11 minutes on 15 May 2023

Guinness World Record had earlier disclosed that its website crashed for two days after Nigerians visited the site en masse to demand the recognition of Hilda’s record-breaking feat.

The latest disclosure from GWR is coming as another Nigerian, Chef Dami cooked for 120 hours in Ekiti State.

She has, however, come under criticism for the timing of her cook-a-thon. Some critics say she should have waited for Chef Hilda to be properly recognized before embarking on her attempt while others say she did not follow the rules, as they claim she took a longer than approved break.

There are also concerns that she did not apply to GWR before attempting to break the cooking record.

Chef Dami’s supporters have, however, lauded her bravery and countered that there was nothing wrong with her competing to beat Chef Hilda's record.

Guinness World Record is yet to put out an official statement concerning Chef Dami’s feat.
