According to Guinness World Records, their website went down for two days due to a cook-a-thon hosted by Hilda Effiong Bassey, nicknamed Hilda Baci, a Nigerian chef.
This information was provided in a statement by a representative of the record organisation on 13th june, 2023 along with the formal certification of Hilda as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon by an individual.
The spokesperson said that the massive amount of traffic from Hilda’s devoted followers caused their website to break down.
“Hilda’s cook-a-thon was in fact so popular that our website crashed for two days due to the immense volume of traffic we received from her legion of loyal fans,” the rep said.
It was however revealed that just 93 hours 11 minutes of Hilda’s 100-hour kitchen marathon were recognised by Guinness World Records.
Thi is because she “mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early in the attempt,” according to the record body, she lost seven hours off her record.
