Mercy expressed her disapproval of Chef Dami’s efforts to surpass Hilda Baci’s record while expressing her admiration for Dami’s passion.
Mercy emphasized that Hilda Baci had waited five years to attempt to surpass Indian Chef Lata Tondon’s previous record for the longest cooking time.
Despite her remarkable accomplishment, Hilda has not yet received the official Guinness World Records (GWR) certificate that acknowledges her remarkable feat.
Kindness depicted the circumstance as denying an individual of their hotly anticipated dream and objective, underscoring that it would be far-fetched for any other person to endeavor such an accomplishment if not for Hilda’s accomplishment.
Mercy emphasized the significance of competition being healthy and fair, despite the fact that it can be advantageous.
“While I appreciate Dami’s passion, I must express my disagreement with her actions.
“Hida Baci patiently waited for five years after Lata Tondon set the record for the longest cooking time.
“Unfortunately, the Guinness World Records (GWR) has not yet recognised Hilda’s achievement by awarding her the certificate she deserves.
“The situation feels like depriving someone of their long-awaited dream and goal.
“It’s unlikely that anyone else would have considered attempting this feat if Hilda hadn’t done it.
“While competition can be beneficial, it should always be healthy and fair,” Queen wrote.
Chef Dami began her 120-hour cooking marathon in Oye Local Government Area, Ekiti State, on Friday, in a determined effort to surpass Hilda Baci’s record.
Hilda, also known as Hilda Effiong Bassey, set the new record in May, surpassing Chef Lata Tondon’s previous record of 87 hours, 45 minutes, and 00 seconds.
Despite Hilda’s accomplishment, the official recognition from the Guinness World Records is still pending.
